An internship allows a prospective engineer to experience early what his or her chosen career is about, thus illuminating the application of academics to come. If you have chosen to study mechanical engineering, for instance, a good internship will let you see the problems face day to day. If that experience interests you, then you have a better chance to focus. If not, then you have a chance to change course.
Secondly, a graduate engineer with several sessions of relevant work experience can “hit the ground running.” That makes you much more attractive to prospective employers. Someone who has co-op or interned will probably have multiple job offers before graduation.
Thirdly, you will more than likely have real world experience in life outside the campus, again giving you a head start in the working world, and you will probably have less education debt having earned some of your way through school.
