Wow!! Already a Third Year Electrical Engineer !!!!!

<p>Man, time sure flies when you're in college. So word of advice: Freshmen, you should really cherish every moment of your time in college because college is short and once it's over you're basically in the real world. </p>

<p>The reason why I bring this is up is because it is basically the time of year when I have to start applying for internships for this summer but I do not know where or how to begin. Can anyone help me out with this? Does UCLA have it's own website for networking/jobs? Also I'm looking into doing some research next quarter. Any advice on how to begin? Lastly, if someone can give me a list of companies that I can apply to as a summer electrical engineering intern that would be so helpful. Thank you so much guys. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!</p>

<p>The website is called BruinView. They have internships, jobs, etc. available to UCLA students only. That is the only question I can answer for you.. Good luck!

<p>A third year and you still haven't done an internship?</p>

<p>Damn. You are a late bloomer.</p>

<p>Sorry to be mean, but my advice to incoming freshmen is to familiarize themselves with the resources they have at their disposal as quickly as possible. That way, they can cherish their college moments while constantly remembering why they're in college in the first place.</p>

<p>To answer your questions, use BruinView for careers and keep an eye out for the Winter career fair. The Winter fair usually focuses on internships. In terms of a company list, it depends on what area of EE you plan to specialize in. If you're into circuits, for example, Intel is a popular choice.</p>

<p>For research, look up professors and labs using Google and word of mouth to see if any professor does something you're interested in. If so, contact that professor directly to see if he/she has work for you or suggestions for things to learn. Many people take a class with a professor, and then ask for a project, but this is not necessary.</p>

<p>Last year, there were a lot of students who hung out in the Undergraduate EE Lounge who can answer a lot of these questions; I'd imagine that's still the case. I believe the room number is Engineering IV 67-127.</p>
