CEE-IP Employer Information

The Civil & Environmental Engineering Department's Internship Program (CEE-IP) partners qualified, motivated students with local industry employers to help fill short-term technical positions. Employers who participate in the CEE-IP gain access to a skilled workforce early in their engineering careers, with the opportunity to train, evaluate, and recruit potential employees. Students participating in the program get to put their knowledge to work and earn money while gaining invaluable job experience. Our program is flexible to meet both the needs of the employers and those of the students.

How It Works

The CEE-IP is a simple way for employers to access a pool of interested, bright applicants eager to gain real-world work experience.  Our program is administratively simple: employers accepted to participate in the program are allowed access to a resume viewbook.  After reviewing the information, employers contact the applicants directly for the next steps in the hiring process.

Student Eligibility Requirements

Undergraduate students selected to participate must have a minimum 3.0 GPA in the required engineering, math, and science courses.  Graduate students must have a minimum 3.25 graduate GPA. 

Internship models

The design of the internship will vary depending on employer needs and student schedules.  The two main internship models for undergraduate students are as follows:

Employers might have different needs for internships models, and are welcome to discuss those models with the applicants directly.  The CEE Department will work with students to create modified course plans as needed.

Employers interested in participating in the CEE-IP should contact the CEE Department at ceedept@cecs.pdx.edu or 503.725.4282.
