If you join the UIC College of Engineering, you will be guaranteed a paid internship during the summer before the academic year in which you graduate, provided that you fulfill the following requirements by the end of the spring semester before that summer (or at the time points otherwise listed). 

Note to current UIC engineering transfer students: if eligible, you will be notified of your internship placements by early June 2018.
