Borne out of COVID-19 job loss and internship cancellations, Practicum was founded and is fully operated by a team of college students from around the United States. We aim to put together teams of 5-10 undergraduate engineers with early-stage startup founders and technical mentors that have an industry background. Our ultimate goal for the summer is to empower a community of students and young professionals to work on meaningful projects, grow their network and develop real-world skills that they can take with them beyond our program.
That’s where Practicum steps in. We're created by students. For students.
We’re on a mission to connect motivated students with high-quality, high-impact projects, propelling them forward in their technical careers while simultaneously transforming our founders’ ideas into reality.
Motivated students from all backgrounds and experience levels are encouraged to apply. We can't wait to read your application and get to know you better. Once you join the program, we’ll work with you every step of the way from team placement to project completion.
As our valuable clients, you are the founders that bring the ideas, the industry insights, and the creativity that will be the driving force of our student intern teams. You are directly in charge of your project's high-level direction -- it's your idea, so you get to own the process. But, you won't be alone. The Practicum team will always have your back throughout this journey.
Mentors are the technical and industry experts that we rely on for our teams to truly succeed. Your experience, guidance, and mentorship is invaluable, and will directly forge the future path of your intern team. If you'd like to make a tangible impact on exciting projects, then this is the perfect role for you.
