Hosting an Environmental Systems (ESYS) Intern

View our handy slideshow for an overview of the ESYS Senior Internship Project guidelines!

The UCSD Environmental Systems Program (ESYS) recognizes the growing demand for environmental specialists and is designed to prepare undergraduates to enter a broad spectrum of environmental careers and graduate programs in the natural sciences, the social sciences, public policy, law, or business.  An integral component of the ESYS major is a Senior Internship/Project.  Students complete approximately 200 internship hours, typically between October and June their final year. 

Please let us know if you can place one or more of our students within your organization.  The intent is to create a mutually rewarding experience for the student and for your organization. You’ll find that ESYS students are well trained, highly motivated, and especially eager to get hands-on practical experience.

Benefits to hosting an ESYS intern include:

The services of highly motivated students eager to improve upon their skills.

An expanded workforce for special projects or short-term assignments.

Access to current academic research in your field.

A chance to observe and train potential employees.

An opportunity to help train the workforce of the future.
