In addition to UMD's Careers4Engineers and Careers4Terps databases, expand your search by looking at some of these websites that can help you find internships, co-ops, or full-time positions. Some sites have actual job listings while others offer general information to help you conduct a more effective job search.

International Job Search 

The Clark School Office of International & Leadership Programs website includes a search for credit-bearing study abroad opportunities that include internships, research or volunteer components.

If you plan to participate in an internship, research or volunteer program abroad that is not administered or sponsored by the University of Maryland, please review the Health and Safety Information from the Office of International Affairs.

Costs and Funding

In the U.S., technical internships and co-op positions in industry are often paid, but outside the U.S., engineering students generally are not paid to work as interns. If you are not a citizen of your intended host country, you will also need to consider the cost and feasibility of obtaining a work permit. Program providers that help students find internships abroad usually charge significant fees for internship placement, assistance with housing and visa applications, and on-site assistance. It is worth applying for scholarships and fellowships. Start looking at opportunities 1-2 years before you want to pursue the study or research opportunity.

National Scholarships Office at UMD provides information and advising on prestigious scholarships and fellowships for research or graduate study in the U.S. or abroad.
Bright Futures Scholarship is sponsored by the University Career Center to provide funding for unpaid internships with non-profit organizations or government agency in the U.S. and abroad.
Work, Intern, Volunteer and Research Abroad: Funding Resources for Students is a comprehensive list of scholarships and awards for students seeking experiential learning programs abroad, compiled by NAFSA: Association of International Educators.
