At-Sea Opportunities for College Students

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.

The 2015 six-month internship will be hosted by the R/V Oceanus at Oregon State University from approximately March 20 through September 25. We are accepting applications through January 5, 2015. Applications for summer 2015 internships will be accepted from mid-January through March 2015. For more information and an application, please see the "I want to be an intern" page!
