To help prepare students to be competitive and prepared for employment upon graduation, the MATE Center has developed the At-Sea Technical Internship Program. Interns work as marine technicians aboard sea-going research vessels that are part of the University National Oceanographic Laboratory System (UNOLS), the United States Coast Guard, and the Ocean Exploration Trust.
Do you want to understand the nitty gritty details of what it is like to be a marine technician? Check out the new Knowledge and Skill Guidelines for Oceanographic Instrumentation Technicians.
Applications for the 2017 summer internship are now being accepted through March 15th, 2017, 3pm PDT! To apply, go to I want to be an intern and click on the "how do I apply" button to read the eligibility criteria and apply.
