MDOT's Internship Program (formerly MDOT Co-op Program) offers undergraduate/graduate students interested in civil engineering, civil technology, construction management and land surveying the opportunity to gain work experience, develop professional competence and long-range career goals, integrate work experiences with academic knowledge, and establish a professional network.

With our program, internship students will gain valuable experience by working with professional field staff who provide engineering and inspection services and are responsible for overseeing highway and bridge construction contracts throughout Michigan. 

Internship Program Advantages:

  • Allows students to gain practical experience and solid understanding of work in civil engineering and civil engineering technology
  • Provides an opportunity to earn income which will help to cover the cost of a college education
  • Helps students relate the academic and industrial worlds - see how information covered in classes is related to industry and government
