Industrial Design Internship

Qualifications:

Currently enrolled, or soon to be enrolled in a BA program in Industrial Design.

Format:

The internship will begin with several days working in our factory, gaining experience with the manufacturing constraints of our company. After this period is complete, you will assist our in-house designer with product design and development, design research, aesthetic development, CAD, product prototyping, photography and photo editing, and creation of graphic materials. Lastly, in addition to these responsibilities, you will be given time to work on an open-ended project of your own choice (with limits), with assistance and mentoring from Sprout staff.

Hours: 

At least 120 hours over the course of 4 months. This is a minimum requirement set to ensure that you have a valuable experience, and that you have time to get up to speed and make a meaningful difference. If you are interested in doing additional hours for more experience or to complete requirements, we are usually able to accommodate your needs.

Compensation:

A stipend upon completion of internship, dependent on value brought to company and quality of work.

College Credit:

Quark Enterprises will work with you to get college credit. However, it is the responsibility of the intern to lead out in making sure these requirements are met. If additional hours are required, this isn't a problem.
