Position: Electrical Engineering Intern
We are looking for a select number of exceptional students who are currently enrolled in, or recently graduated from, an academic program in Electrical Engineering or related disciplines to consider joining an elite team of their peers at Temple Allen Industries in Rockville, MD. Candidates with a focus on Robotics or Mechatronics or with a second major in Computer Science or Mechanical Engineering are particularly encouraged to apply.
As part of our Engineering team, you will bring your talents, energy, and dedication to the cutting edge and interdisciplinary development of industrial automation technologies that integrate unique mechanical / pneumatic tooling with sensors, graphic interfaces, data collection, machine learning, and AI. Candidates chosen for the team will be working to real specifications in real time for real customers – delivering groundbreaking products to customers you’ll want on your resume.
The position is eligible for Co-Op credit and we will work with candidates to support them meeting their school’s requirements. Intern positions are also available to recent graduates.
The Ideal Practicum
This is a highly competitive internship, and the extraordinary challenge it represents is not for everyone. Current and recent interns have come to us from some of the country’s most rigorous programs, and gone on to secure positions at NASA, Apple, Google, and CERN. If you should be accepted as an intern at Temple Allen, we believe Temple Allen offers you a more intensely educational and hands-on experience than any university curriculum – an experience that supplements and improves all subsequent classroom time as you chart your own course towards graduation.
