What is the Graduate Internship Program?

The Graduate Internship Program at Georgia Tech is an innovative approach to experiential learning.  The program was established in 1983 and is currently the largest graduate internship program in the United States in which students of all majors are eligible to participate.  The program provides all graduate students the opportunity to work with industry and governmental leaders in their respective areas of study.  Students receive approval from their major school to work full or part-time assignments during any semester. Graduate students may not work more than two consecutive full-time semesters before returning to school for classes, without approval from the Office of the Vice Provost of Graduate Education.

There are no fees associated with the Graduate Internship Program. Students are enrolled through their registration in an audited hour graduate internship course, based on the number of hours that they are working weekly. A full-time internship (32 - 40 hours/week) permits students to retain all privileges of full-time enrolled students while on work assignments.  The Graduate Internship Program is available to masters and doctoral level students.
