Engineering Internships

MKA is currently accepting applications for Summer 2024 internships. Click here to apply!

The mission of MKA’s internship program is simple: we want to show you what we do and how we do it. MKA generally brings in five to seven interns each summer, letting them experience true hands-on engineering. Students are part of a project team and exposed to actual day-to-day engineering. They work on world-class projects currently in design; validate their chosen career direction; find unmatched training opportunities; have access to MKA’s extensive continuing education and training programs; and attend any of MKA’s technical specialist group meetings.

MKA Structural Interns typically work for two or three months during the summer between their bachelor’s and master’s degree programs.
