Industrial Design Internships

All students getting their BSID at SJSU are required to do a minimum of one internship with a company. Internships are a great way for students to get hands-on, real world experience in a professional design environment AND apply what they have learned in the classroom into real life situations. Additionally, what a student learns in the Internship becomes invaluable to them upon their return to their final semesters at SJSU. It is to an Industrial Design students’ advantage to do as many Internships as possible while they are in school. Internships are typically done after the DSID 123A Portfolio course and should be completed before or in progress when enrolled in DSID 125A. Summer is the best time to do internships, but they can also be done during the academic year.

International Students:

You must obtain work authorization before beginning any internship or off campus employment. Please visit the International Education Office to find out about the requirements and more information.
