Find a Job, Internship, or Co-Op

Students in the College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences (CEMS) at UVM can find and apply for jobs, internships, co-ops, and other professional opportunities in several ways.


The majority of CEMS students complete one or more internships during their time as UVM undergraduates. Most often, CEMS students complete  full-time internships over the summer, though many also intern on a part-time basis during the academic year - typically at companies in the greater Burlington area. Most students participate in internships for professional development and for pay, though some students also pursue academic credit for internships under certain circumstances.

Students in CEMS can receive credit for internships in accordance with the Policy on Internships for Academic Credit. Internship credit must be arranged prior to the start of an internship. Contact the CEMS Career Readiness Program to discuss further.

CEMS Cooperative Education (Co-Op) Program

Students in the College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences (CEMS) at UVM can pursue 6-9 month, full-time work opportunities, also known as co-ops, in accordance with the CEMS Cooperative Education Program Policy. Co-op opportunities may be available with specific companies or agencies that work closely with the College, or student may pursue outside co-ops. Either way, co-ops careful require planning beforehand. Any student wishing to pursue a co-op experience should meet with the CEMS Career Readiness Coordinator to discuss further details about the program, how to find co-op opportunities, and what needs to be completed prior to starting a co-op.
