"The MACOM internship program takes a ‘wind in your sails’ approach — they give you a project that you own and manage, then give you the support to see it through. During my internship, I found myself working directly with, and learning from, the CFO and CEO on important projects.”
-MACOM intern, 2010-2011
What to expect from a MACOM internship/co-op
As a student, you thrive on solving problems. But too often, internships/co-ops provide few challenges, rewards or valuable career experience. At MACOM, an internship/co-op is a career-building experience that delivers more of what you want and need—from hands-on engineering projects, training and guidance to some social events.
Work for an industry leader
MACOM is a leading supplier of high performance analog RF, microwave, and millimeter wave products that enable next-generation Internet and modern battlefield applications. Recognized for its broad catalog portfolio of technologies and products, MACOM serves diverse markets, including high speed optical, satellite, radar, wired and wireless networks, CATV, automotive, industrial, medical, and mobile devices. We thrive on more than 60 years of solving our customers' most complex problems, serving as a true partner for applications ranging from RF to Light.
Gain experience in a key discipline
As you plan your career path, you want to find out what work life is like in the discipline that interests you— whether it's finance, administration, marketing, or engineering. The MACOM internship program provides opportunities in all of these areas.
Take on and be responsible for high-profile projects
At MACOM, interns are challenged to take on—and take ownership for—business-critical projects that test and expand your engineering skills. It's not uncommon to work directly with C-level executives on assignments such as:
• Applications engineering: providing direct customer support
• Design engineering: contributing at design and kick-off stages
• Marketing: supporting internal and external communications
Build professional relationships
MACOM managers in the internship/co-op program act as mentors, providing you with guidance and introducing you to colleagues who can help you develop your skills and advance your career.
Benefit from a structured program
MACOM’s internship/co-op program includes orientation, training, goal-setting, regular reviews, formal presentations, and performance evaluations for interns. Managers who are working with interns attend internship training and workshops prior to placement of the intern. You'll be supporting our business while developing yourself both personally and professionally.
Receive compensation and housing assistance
The MACOM internship/co-op program pays a competitive salary—and through our relationship with the University of Massachusetts Lowell, we provide on-campus housing assistance.
