Internship Information

Internships may, or may not, be completed by students for academic credit.  Both types of internships (for-credit and non-credit) may be posted in Handshake by employers.  Students who would like to complete an internship for credit must contact the internship coordinator within their academic department in order to coordinate the process with CMU and the employer.  Internship coordinators are also a great resource to assist employers with the recruitment of interns in addition to posting opportunities in Handshake.
