UNIVERSITY RECRUITING

Outwardly, the transition from school to work seems clear-cut. But in fact, your career is well underway before you leave campus—and at JPL, your learning never ends. Here are some of the opportunities for both students and new grads you’ll find along the way.

Students

Being an Intern at JPL puts you right in the action, working alongside the scientists and engineers who’ve helped make JPL the leading center for robotic exploration of the solar system. Internships at JPL provide a strong pathway to a career with JPL and NASA. Many JPLers entered our Universe as student interns and contribute to major discoveries at JPL today.

As part of every internship, students receive mentorship and are encouraged to apply for full-time roles upon graduation.

We are looking for current students enrolled in relevant disciplines who demonstrate academic excellence with a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA.

JPL offers internships through both Human Resources and the Education Office which require separate applications.

On this page, you can explore both sets of student opportunities.

Internships hosted through HR are listed below.
