Department of Engineering


Students majoring in the programs offered by the Engineering Department often pursue internship opportunities. Because of Hofstra’s location in the New York metropolitan area, there are often many opportunities in the local region, although students also have taken advantage of internship opportunities across the United States. The companies at which our students interned include:

  • NASA
  • Disney
  • Lockheed Martin
  • Toyota
  • Northrup Grumman
  • Bohler Engineering
  • Estée Lauder
  • Globecomm Systems

In order to help prepare students for all these opportunities, the Engineering Department supports numerous activities. The department sponsors events in which alumni and other professionals discuss career opportunities and network with our students. Finally, there are opportunities for students to work with engineering faculty in conducting grant-related research.
