About the Ansys Internship Program
The best future engineers and computer scientists are currently studying hard to learn all they can to graduate from college in the next few years. We want to identify and work with these students while they are still in school to add professional experience to their portfolios. Each semester, we offer some of the best students the opportunity to feel the thrill of bringing innovation to life through simulation technology. While Ansys hosts interns around the world, we have specifically included more detail on our U.S.-based programs below.
Our U.S. Internship Program
We make sure our interns receive challenging assignments related to their field of study by connecting them with the Ansys business unit that matches their interests. They take on entry-level roles in software development, software testing or software R&D, depending on their preferences and our needs.
Each intern works 40 hours per week for a minimum of 12 weeks. Interning for multiple semesters is a possibility for high-performing students who want to enhance their work experience and who fill a need at Ansys.
Our U.S. Co-op Program
While interns spend a summer with Ansys, co-op students alternate between school and full-time work assignments each semester for an extended real-world work experience. Beginning sophomore year and in partnership with the student’s university co-op department, students commit to three (3) semester rotations for engineers and two (2) semesters for computer science majors, working 40 hours per week. Each rotation provides new, challenging assignments to progressively develop each student’s unique technical competencies.
