Internship FAQs

Who qualifies as an intern?

Undergraduate or graduate students (Master's or PhD) who are enrolled at least part-time at an accredited college or university or who have graduated within six months of the internship opportunity are qualified to be hired at Synopsys. Typically, interns have achieved third year or junior status in an undergraduate program or equivalent before being considered.

A student may be required to provide proof of enrollment in an accredited college or university program upon request prior to employment. U.S. candidates currently on student visas (F-1, J, or Practical Training) are also encouraged to apply.
