ISE Internship Opportunities

"Educating Leaders for a Changing World."
Welcome to the University of Washington Industrial & Systems Engineering internship website.  Industrial & Systems Engineering prepares students for careers in an increasingly diverse, dynamic, and technological world.  Graduate exit interviews indicate that 75-90% of ISE students work part-time to support their education.  The ISE internship program was launched with the belief that it would be more valuable if students worked in positions that helped expand their understanding of industrial & systems engineering.
An internship is a career-related work experience that integrates classroom theory with "real world" practical experience.  The ISE internship program matches companies and community organizations with talented ISE students.
