In 2016, Systems Engineering launched our first ever summer internship program, which has continued to grow and develop over the last four years. With unemployment levels for technology workers at record lows, and a steady increase in open tech positions, students have a unique opportunity with Systems Engineering to gain real-world experience through on-the-job training for a quick transition into full-time careers. Several of our past participants have chosen to take positions within Systems Engineering once they have completed formal studies, which is a testament to the strength of our program and the quality of candidates accepted into the summer internship.
"Systems Engineering is a great place to put your IT knowledge to the test. As Systems Engineering supports many clients, this results in interacting and supporting many different environments. My internship not only provided a hands-on experience, but also an insight into the world of IT support and what it is like to work for an employee-owned company in Maine.”
