 Working in an R&D environment focusing on identifying new materials, technologies and techniques that can be integrated into existing business areas.
 Designing, fabricating and assembling all forms of mechanical devices from initial concept to completion or modification and customization of commercial products as well as providing after market services.
For engineering students interested in analytic work, view and apply for analytic undergraduate internship opportunities.
Minimum requirements: Students should be enrolled in Biometrics, Information Networking, Mathematics, Computer Science, Aeronautical/Aerospace Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical/Electronic Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Program Management, and Systems Engineering programs with a GPA of 3.0 or better on a 4.0 scale.

Undergraduate Co-op Program – Engineering
(Spring, Summer, Fall 2018)
Work Schedule: Full Time
Location: Washington, DC metropolitan area
Our cooperative education program seeks highly motivated, creative, and innovative students who have outstanding interpersonal and team knowledge to help solve intelligence problems to work in the CIA's Directorate of Science and Technology. Applications for winter, spring, and fall should be submitted at least 9-12 months before the desired start date.
Assignments include:
 Developing quick turn-around technical solutions, which require the application and/or modification of hardware and software.
 Working in an R&D environment focusing on identifying new materials, technologies and techniques that can be integrated into existing business areas.
 Designing, fabricating and assembling all forms of mechanical devices from initial concept to completion or modification and customization of commercial products as well as providing after market services.
Minimum requirements: Students should be enrolled in Biometrics, Information Networking, Mathematics, Computer Science, Aeronautical/Aerospace Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical/Electronic Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Program Management, and Systems Engineering programs with a GPA of 3.0 or better on a 4.0 scale.
Students selected for this program are often attending academic institutions with established cooperative education programs, though not exclusively. They work on an alternating semester or quarterly basis and are expected to spend a minimum of three semesters or four quarters (this can include a summer tour) on the job prior to graduation. The undergraduate co-op program provides increasingly challenging assignments that are commensurate with the students' academic training and individual ability to assume additional responsibility.
