EE internship after freshman year?

<p>is it possible to get an internship after your freshman year? my school's page says that the engineering co ops usually begin after junior year though.</p>

<p>I'm assuming you're talking about a standard, over the summer internship, right?
A co-op is different from an internship.</p>

<p>A co-op generally means that you're working full time, and take a semester off of classes (plus work during part of the summer). Since you are working full time, that is why co-ops generally don't start until you've taken more classes that apply to the work.</p>

<p>Campus internship: research internship, or course internship (like tutorship...)
Off-campus internship: research internship, work internship (let say intern at a particular firm, or company)</p>

<p>These are all possible for freshman. In my school, the departments have to accept freshman into research labs if the professors want to get funding from the school.</p>

<p>Summer internship is always possible for freshman. The only way to keep research lab going is to accept some freshman, and so train for the next potential four years. </p>

<p>Co-ops, exactly what Johnson said.</p>

<p>I had an internship after my first year but it was with a local company.</p>
