You can earn a Masters degree and a salary one year through the University of Oregon’s Masters Industrial Internship Program. This program provides students with the real-world knowledge and skills necessary to be successful in an industrial environment.

The best way to judge the success of the Industrial Masters Program may be its history and its list of corporate partners. Over the last 13 years, approximately 90% of the students that have completed internships through this program have received offers for regular employment from their host company. We also have an impressive group of corporate partners such as Nike, Intel, IBM, Fairchild Semiconductor, Hewlett Packard, the Army Research Lab, ESI, Nanometrics, FEI Company, nLight, DataLogic and SolarWorld.

Through this program students have the opportunity to earn a degree from a leading research university and also learn what is required to be successful after graduation. We focus on the science and help you develop professional business skills that will allow you to be successful throughout your career.

The course work and labs are designed to help students become more effective problem solvers and will assist in developing your communication, collaboration and leadership skills. The labs are built to give students an opportunity to have experiences that closely mirror those they’ll find in industry.

The UO’s Masters Industrial Internship Program awards MS degrees in Chemistry or Applied Physics. Students entering the program typically have bachelor degrees in one of the following areas: Chemistry, Biochemistry, Physics, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or Electrical Engineering.

You can choose to focus in one of four core areas:

• Photovoltaic & Semiconductor Device Processing

• Optical Materials & Devices

• Polymers & Coatings

• Organic Synthesis & Organometallics

Internships/co-ops typically pay from $2,400 – $5,400 per month. Though internships are not guaranteed, the program has historically placed 98% of its students in internships and the program staff assists in every way to ensure you are a very competitive candidate for available opportunities.
