Physics Internships and Involvement

Connect to like-minded students and professionals in the industry to advance your Simpson Experience.

Having an internship experience is one of the top reasons graduates are hired following graduation. Recognizing this, Simpson places a high value on making sure all our students have the opportunity to participate in this important component of their education.

Simpson's close proximity to Des Moines, one of the most dynamic cities in the Midwest, provides many opportunities for you to practice what you are learning and, at the same time, explore different career options. Your professors, along with the Career Development Office, will assist you preparing for and locating meaningful internships.

A few recent student internship experiences include NASA, 3M Company, National Renewable Energy Laboratory, John Deere, Cornell University's Laboratory for Accelerator-Based Sciences and Education, Shazam, Air Force Research Laboratory and The Cyclotron Institute at Texas A&M University.
