DACC has developed an Engineering Internship Program in hopes of providing students with “real” engineering experience. It is our hope to equip students with more than academics. We recommend internship experiences because they can affect the students’ future employment and salaries. Internships also help students connect classroom material to real engineering.
In the past, we have partnered with local industries such as Aqua Illinois, Krupp, Timeomatic, Danville Metal Stamping, the City of Danville Engineering, Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT), Fiberteq, Tridan International, J&N Enterprises, and Holmes Brothers, Inc., and American Freight to provide internships. All internships are paid with salaries ranging from minimum wage.
Short term internships associated with Engineering for Tomorrow (EFT) have also been provided by Vermilion County Manufacturing Cluster companies.
All internships are competitive; there is no guarantee for a particular internship or even that a student will be placed.
Applying for a internship
Any student interested in an internship should report to Kathy Sturgeon MM 113 or email@example.com. You will be required to fill out an application and submit an electronic resume. All students will have to undergo a GPA, coursework, and instructor/work reference check.
