At-Sea Opportunities for College Students
|Rachel Gaines working on an ROV during her MATE Internship on the E/V Nautilus|
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 Institute For Exploration.
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.

Internship applications for 2013 are currently closed, but for information on future opportunities and what life is like on a ship, please see the "I want to be an intern" page!

If you have any questions or would like more information on the MATE Center, please contact the MATE Internship Coordinator, Tami Lunsford, at (302) 731-3035. I look forward to receiving your application and hope that the MATE Center will be able to help you achieve your academic and career goals!
