CETA Students Are Industry-Focused
The College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture (CETA) prepares you for the most challenging and rewarding internships that enhance traditional classroom and laboratory education with work opportunities. Internships provide the opportunity for students to apply their academic education while allowing them to obtain the practical experience necessary to perform successfully in today’s world.
CETA students work with their faculty advisor, CETA Assistant Dean and/or the Office of Career Services to assist in identifying an appropriate internship, clarifying job expectations, and granting academic credit for the internship experiences, as appropriate. CETA also works closely with the Career Services to assist students with networking, resume building and more.
This summer, many of our students will be embarking on their first (and for some—second!) internship at companies including:
- General Dynamics Electric Boat
- QA+M Architecture
- Pro Audio Design
- Bauer Inc.
- Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL)
- Lane Construction
- Powerstation Events
Two CETA Students Interning Together at Cerami & Associates
Jack Breton ’21, a mechanical engineering major with acoustics concentration, and Nate Cromie ’20, an acoustical engineering and music major are working together as acoustics interns at Cerami & Associates NYC this summer. As Acoustics Interns at Cerami & Associates in New York City, they are working with Acoustical Consultants on a variety of building projects. Specifically, they are learning the processes behind taking acoustical measurements, analyzing data, reviewing architectural and mechanical drawings, completing appropriate calculations, and testing acoustical properties of structures.
"Applying acoustical concepts learned in the classroom to the field of acoustical consulting has been an invaluable experience. Concepts we learn at UHart are used on a daily basis in this field. It's been a great experience so far and we can't wait to see what the rest of the summer holds,” Jack says.

While NASA internships are notoriously competitive for students to secure, the structure of UHart’s mechanical engineering and acoustics programs equips our future engineers with skills that are currently of great interest to NASA.
DePasquale had an opportunity to intern with Fuss & O’Neill her sophomore year as their Transportation Department intern. She was honored as a recipient of the ITE CT Chapter 2019 and 2020 Student Scholarship Award. This $1,000 award is given each year to a student who demonstrates a strong commitment to the discipline of Transportation Engineering in their coursework and outside activities.
The Civil Engineering program at UHart is one of the finest programs for student success. The program itself is strategically designed to stimulate, and I've had the opportunity to attend lunch and learns to build relationships with potential employers and build great experience at my internship with Fuss & O'Neill.
