Israel Summer Internships
Professional Internships: Professional Internships are directed work-study experiences taken in companies and industry sectors common to the Israeli economy. Working as an intern enables students to connect theory with practice and apply the engineering and/or scientific principles learned in the classroom to a real-world professional environment. Completing an internship abroad is an invaluable opportunity to learn about local business and engineering practices and customs, hone personal and professional skills and habits and broaden perspectives. The program awards Technion credit for professional internships. It is open to qualified undergraduates from the second year and above with a minimum GPA of 3.0. Students can be accredited up to 3 credits, for a minimum of 200 hours over a period of 8-12 weeks. Please note that the internships are unpaid positions.
