Shanghai provides the perfect backdrop and network for an internship in engineering. As the largest city in, not just China, but the world, Shanghai is home to several industrial ‘zones’ focused on technological development. It’s also a hub for transportation and technology, and home to many Chinese and multinational company headquarters.
Our program guarantees an internship placement to help you develop professional skills that will jump-start your engineering career and make you more attractive to employers in today’s competitive job market.
IES Internships’ unpaid, academic engineering internships place interns in fields such as biotechnology, chemical engineering, environmental engineering, and other science and technology-related fields. But even before you depart, we work with you to fine-tune your résumé, perfect your cover letter, and hone your networking and interviewing skills, as well as prepare you for working in a new cultural environment.
For your summer internship in China, you’ll be matched with a local business or organization, where you’ll work for at up to 32 hours per week. You can also enroll in an optional Chinese language course if your internship schedule allows. With IES Internships’ dedicated staff and international connections in Shanghai, you can be sure that you’ll have a summer internship that meets your goals. You’ll learn, and learn to stand out!
