Carnegie Mellon University

Internships not only lead to careers–they help students find their passions.

Internships are more than career advancers. They are experiences that allow students to embrace causes they care most about or learn more about new opportunities.

The Dietrich College Pittsburgh Summer Internship Program at Carnegie Mellon University is designed for undergraduates to engage and connect with organizations in the place CMU calls home: Pittsburgh.

Access to Internship Details for Accepted Students (Andrew ID Required)

How It Works

  • The student application has two parts. Students must first apply to be part of the Pittsburgh Summer Internship Program. If accepted, students will then be able to apply to positions available through the program.
  • Pittsburgh-area companies or organizations employ Dietrich College students for 20-30 hours per week.
  • Students accepted into the program will be supported up to the minimum level of $2,600.
  • Applications are now open for organizations interested in recruiting interns. The deadline to apply is Dec. 15.
    • Organizations will be notified of their approval on a rolling basis, but no later than January 15th.
  • Applications will open for students (interested in applying to the program) in mid-December and will close on February 15th.
