The Global Engineering Internship (GEI) Program aims to enhance engineering education by providing undergraduate, coterm, master’s, and PhD students with an opportunity to learn about developing economies and to gain real-world work experience in a culturally diverse and international environment.
We work closely with companies to match Stanford students to internships offered through this program. In addition, we encourage engineering students that are seeking their “first” experience abroad as interns to apply as well.
- Exciting summer engineering internship opportunities in developing economies such as China, India, Thailand, South America, etc.
- Cutting-edge technology and impactful projects
- Highly customized position to best match students’ interest
- Support for self-designed opportunities available
- Both undergraduate and graduate students are eligible
Late June - Early September, 2021
