Default college engineering internship sought after.

My youngest son is attending Texas A & M - Commerce campus majoring in engineering and mathematics(dual major I think). He thinks he has a job doing thesis work next fall & spring.
(not sure how if he is taking 21 hours).

anyways... he is looking for an internship position for the summer and I figured I'd ask the greenscreen.

He is N.E. of Dallas and we live around Liberty Hill, west of Georgetown. I am trying to get him to get into some "real world" experience while in school. He is up to his neck in classes now so i figured I'd try to help him out.

Suggestions...ideas...advice ... all welcome

thanx,

If he's interested in Dallas area he might contact Collins Aerospace. We do hire interns.

yeah, I think he'd rather stay up in that area instead of coming home.

Just a heads up but most of the plants and refineries around SETX started looking at the colleges back in early February for interns for the summer. I don't know if its that way around the Dallas market. Good luck

I donít know what year he is in for school, but if heís looking in the construction industry would say for future reference he should be talking to companies in the fall for a summer internship. Iím sure heíll find something, but most have their spots filled 6-9 months in advance.

this is his 2nd year, but he is classified as a senior with the hours he has.

Guys, I tried & tried to instill upon him the importance of looking early for an intern position...to no avail. I think he was thinking things were not back to normal due to covid.

He wasn't wrong. Back in the fall, we weren't the least bit worried about interns. All our office people were working remotely and we certainly weren't looking at hiring college students. That changed a bit after the New Year, but I bet there are still positions available just due to the covid situation.

Got it...Unfortunately, our program was filled in the fall, but we'll keep your son's resume on file for next summer. I also flipped it to my buddy at S&B Engineering.
