Interns 2024 January and Summer

Interns will work on software power electronics, nuclear fusion, spacecraft, and aircraft systems. Tasks may include writing software in MATLAB or C/C++ and doing CAD work in Fusion 360. Interns will write reports and contribute to technical papers. Electronics interns will work in Spice and with laboratory prototypes. Most interns work on 2-3 projects over the summer. Interns will interact with engineers and scientists at Princeton Satellite Systems on a daily basis and also with customers. No particular field of study is required. We hire rising sophomores through graduate students.

An intern from the summer of 2021 presented her work at the International Astronautical Congress meeting in Paris, France this fall! Her work was on a Titan aircraft powered by a fusion reactor.

January internships are 2-4 weeks. Summer internships are 8-12 weeks. All internships are at our offices in Plainsboro, NJ, 17 minutes by car from Princeton University. Hours are flexible and working remotely on occasion is allowed. Interns benefit greatly from in-person interactions with staff members and their fellow interns.
