The Stanford School of Engineering offers Global Engineering Programs that are designed to enhance engineering education by providing undergraduate and graduate students with opportunities to have an immersive experience in a culturally diverse and international environment. We do this, in part, because we understand that engineers are expected to work globally and we want to prepare our students appropriately.
The Global Engineering Internship (GEI) Program provides students with an opportunity to learn about developing economy's rapidly expanding role in global business and technology and to gain real-world work experience in a culturally diverse environment. We have built partnership with host companies in China, India, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and UAE . The hosting organizations range from multinational to local companies, from giant corporations to small start-ups. In an effort to serve as many Stanford students as possible, we strive to cover a wide range of engineering fields including Aeronautics and Astronautics, Bioengineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Management Science and Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Product Design. Both undergraduate and graduate students are eligible for this program.
The host company would provide stipend so that students can live comfortably, and travel a small amount (on weekends). In some cases, companies provide housing as part of the package. Either the host organization or Stanford GEI program will cover international airfare.
Note: The internships are intended to be in-person pending university travel policies. They may need to pivot to online or subject to cancellation due to travel constraints and other uncertainties.
Some example host companies/ positions (more to be updated):
1. Internship positions in R&D, IC Design, Manufacturing, QA, IT, Management, etc. at TSMC, Hsinchu, Taiwan. A separate application directly to the company should be submitted here. (Please also complete application via SOLO so that the GEI staff can help to follow up with the company.)
2. Multiple projects including Range Optimization for an Electric Vehicle at KPIT, Pune, India.
7. 50+ Engineering internship positions such as conversational AI and ML, big data analytics are available at Infosys, Bangalore, India. For complete project list, please review and directly apply to the company. (Please also complete application via SOLO so that the GEI staff can help to follow up with the company.)
Note that the deadline is Jan 31st, 2023. Early submission is encouraged since application will be processed on a rolling basis.
What you will do
Conduct 9-12 weeks of summer engineering internship at host companies in developing economies.
