With one of the best internship programs in the textile industry, our students get first-hand experience and begin building their professional network while in college.
With the assistance of the program, students are placed in either full or part-time positions typically beginning in their junior year. Students can receive credit for their placement, or can choose non-credit options. Students can take internships during the regular academic semester, the winter break or the summer recess.
Upon graduation many of our students receive job offers from the companies they interned with, or through connections they developed during their internships.
