CSBR Summer Internship Program

COVID Update!  We have decided to adjust our schedule and conduct a condensed online version of the CSBR Aerospace Internship from June 22 to June 26, 2020.  The good news is, we have more space available so we won’t have to limit slots this year!  You will still get to hear from all the major aerospace companies in Colorado, hear about all the exciting programs they are working on, learn about what it takes to work in aerospace, and ask questions to engineers and others who work on these programs!  Additionally, because some of the coolest parts of the program are the labs and the tours, we will keep in contact after this year’s program and plan on hosting you in person for in-person tours once all our facilities open back up for visitors again (possibly next summer).  If you are interested in attending the virtual program, please register below and we will send out the agenda and zoom information in early June.

Interested in Aerospace?

The Colorado Space Business Roundtable (CSBR) is hosting a 2020 Summer Internship Program for high school and college students interested in pursuing careers in the aerospace industry. All students pursuing STEM- (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) related disciplines are encouraged to apply.

The 2020 CSBR Internship Program will run for two weeks during the summer which gives students ample time to experience what it’s like to work in various facets of the aerospace industry. Students will spend time at various CSBR partner facilities where they will have a chance to meet the best and the brightest in the aerospace industry, participate in hands-on activities, and get an exclusive behind the-scenes look at what each company does and some of the exciting projects they are working on.

It’s Not Rocket Science!

But wait, it is! If you’ve ever gazed up to the stars and wondered what’s out there or perhaps even had dreams of going yourself, now is your chance to start turning those dreams into reality. If you are a high school or college student living in Colorado, you are eligible to apply for the 2020 CSBR Internship Program where you will get a chance to gain exposure and obtain relevant work experience with various aerospace companies in Colorado.

During the internship you will have an opportunity to network with leading aerospace professionals, drive rovers, launch water rockets, learn about the various engineering disciplines and what it takes to be successful in the industry, and meet a number of people working on some amazing projects in aerospace!
