Additional Information

For international students

Fraunhofer CMI's internship program provides a global experience to approximately 16 international interns per year. Since its inception, the program has hosted over 300 students. Interns are provided with housing and a stipend and are encouraged to experience not only the American workplace, but the American culture as well. The program has been tremendously successful, receiving rave reviews from all involved. These students are subsequently highly recruited in their home countries as they bring a global perspective to the job.

Internship opportunities, for a minimum duration of 6 months, are available on a continuous basis for students with engineering, biology, or project management backgrounds.
