The engineering internship program is a collaboration between the University of Arizona, Tecnológico de Monterrey and The Offshore Group. Students will be immersed in technical projects defined by a host company who provides guidance and mentorship. Students will have the opportunity to learn, practice and develop skills required thrive in a global engineering and business environment.
- Students may earn 3 credits of SIE 493, upon approval by their individual home faculty member. Students must identify their home faculty member prior to commitment to earn credit.
- Students must work more than 135 hours through the internship to earn 3 units of credit (students work an eight hour daily schedule, Monday through Friday)
- Please inquire if you require financial aid assistance, as the three credits are not eligible for financial aid
- A maximum of 3 units of SIE 493 may be applied toward 1) technical elective requirements in curricula leading to a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Industrial Engineering, 2) thematic minor requirements in curricula leading to a BS in Systems Engineering, or 3) thematic minor requirements in curricula leading to a BS in Engineering Management

For the 2018 summer, the following projects are available for students:
- TE Connectivity (Tyco Electronics)
- Industrial Engineering Project: Optimization of one specific area of the company using lean manufacturing and statistic skills to propose new ways to produce, maintain, and control the future state. It is expected that the proposition will improve the material´s flow. Identify possible solutions for current engineering issues. Propose new ideas to attack key performance indicators.
- Mechatronics Engineering Project: Apply mechatronic knowledge to improve a semi-automated process. Observe and identify opportunities in the current system. Mechatronics Engineers will work in designing more efficient ways to assemble and manufacture a specific part using their electrical and mechanical skills to improve the machine´s utilization and design. They will be able to redesign the machine, or design new fixtures and components.
Students will be housed in San Carlos: Located 120 km from Hermosillo and 390 km from the U.S. border, it is an integral part of the Port of Guayamas. San Carlos is full of beautiful landscapes drawing tourists to stay and explore fishing, water sports and the surrounding mountains.
Student internships will take place at TE Connectivity, Maquilas Tetakawi.
ITESM will help to arrange housing for our students. A budget of $200-$500 should be considered for these costs.
