The Department of Biomedical Engineering encourages students to participate in professional internships to make themselves competitive for industrial work post-graduation. Students can intern with a wide-spectrum of businesses, government agencies, hospitals, pharmaceutical and technology companies, research institutes and startups in the Austin area, throughout the state and nation and even abroad. The majority job growth in the BME field comes from small to medium-sized companies who look to hire highly motivated students and graduates who actively want to work at their company.

A successful job and internship search therefore includes active participation from the student to seek out companies they want to work for. UT BME engineering students have an outstanding resource in the Engineering Career Assistance Center (ECAC). Registering with ECAC provides a variety of services to graduate and undergraduate students, including access to job boards, resume building advice, and interview preparation.

The University also provides a professional recruitment and job/internship search service HireTexas: AccessUT. also provides a comprehensive list of local and national biomedical engineering internship positions.
