Internships are an important part of the learning process at Missouri S&T. The Mining Engineering program has great industry partners which actively seek students for internship opportunities in their companies. Students are encouraged to begin the internship process as soon as possible, with many students starting the summer after their freshman year.
Our cooperative work-study program is set up so students can take a break from studies and work full-time for one or for a combination of semesters such as spring/summer or summer/fall, allowing 6-8 months of work experience versus. the 3 summer months allowed for internship positions.
