"The Dwyer Internship program is a great opportunity for engineering students to experience the various roles that engineers take on in companies. Dwyer hires interns to work with our Manufacturing Engineers, Design Engineers, Drafters, Product Managers, and Business Development Managers. The interns are able to work on projects that are in the concept stage all the way through the production. Understanding how different parts of a manufacturing business works will better prepare the intern for life after college and open their eyes to other potential career paths they were not aware existed. Many of the interns have either joined Dwyer's organization or reached back to share how the intern helped prepare them for their future career.
Manufacturing interns design test fixtures, develop process improvements, write programs for production equipment, and much more. Design Engineering interns develop drawings of mechanical parts and/or circuit boards in CAD, develop design enhancements to our products, conduct validation testing and many other types of projects. Sales and Marketing Interns develop instructional marketing materials that explain how to use our new products, develop promotional sales documents, and conduct competitive analysis and market research to help strategize future directions of the company."
“I learned what felt like an infinite amount of information during my internship. Whether it was cyber security concepts, computer science concepts, or business practices, I learned a ton. The community of people is great. It’s a very enjoyable place to be. Just getting real world experiences and being given important tasks was a great experience.”
-Zachary D., Valparaiso University
“Dwyer has been such an amazing experience, one that I will never forget. I’ve learned so many things throughout my time here and met some great people along the way. The culture that Dwyer has is one of a kind; they truly care about your success and want to see you grow. I’m so thankful to get to be a part of the Dwyer Family! I would highly recommend this program to anyone!”

“Dwyer has a fantastic internship program that gets you integrated with how an engineering industry operates. Dwyer makes it easy to learn processes of the workplace in an office setting, as well as the hands-on manufacturing and engineering side that could both be utilized by my engineering degree.
