BART Engineering Internship Program – Summer 2021
BART’s Summer Engineering Internship Program is an opportunity for Engineering students to gain valuable training and experience that will enhance the student’s educational goals and provide them invaluable experience in a dynamic work environment. The interns will partner with highly skilled engineers in planning, design and execution of Engineering projects at various BART facilities. Intern assignments directly contribute to BART’s commitment to excellence in Engineering. Come join us this summer!
This summer internship program is scheduled to run for eight (8) weeks beginning on June 21, 2021 and ending on August 13, 2021. All candidates selected must be able to attend the entire program.
Summer Interns that have completed our internship program have stated:
“I learned many things during my 8 weeks here at Bart, but the most meaningful “lesson learned” came from working in an interdisciplinary team, learning to play off one another’s strengths and collaborating on ideas that would not have occurred to me on my own. I also learned to appreciate the work environment here at Bart from observing and interacting with not only my mentors, but the rest of the division as well, and I hope to find similar experiences in my professional career.”
“BART provided me a new perspective for Engineering that none of my previous experienced did. As an intern, my journey at BART was super exceptional and full of fun.”
“During my internship, I learned the importance of collaborating with different Engineering and Maintenance disciplines on practical projects. BART has taught me how to effectively/professionally communicate my ideas and objections not only to my own team but also to other related teams working on the same project.”
“The BART internship gave me exactly the opportunity to apply the knowledge I had to real life application that can affect 450,000 people a day. I am proud that my project can improve overall safety for the BART power system as well as the BART passengers. Aside from that, the teamwork and time management skills I learned from the summer internship can also be beneficial in my future career.”
