Job Shadowing Program

The Penn State Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering Society (PSIMES) is proud to offer students and organizations the opportunity to participate in a Job Shadowing Program, which allows industrial engineering students at Penn State the opportunity to experience, firsthand, the rigors and rewards of an industrial/manufacturing engineering position in industry.


The goals of the PSIMES Job Shadowing Program are:

  1. To provide opportunities for current Penn State industrial engineering students to gain a real-life perspective of career opportunities by spending a day onsite with organizations that employ industrial and/or manufacturing engineers.
  2. To build relationships with organizations that employ industrial/manufacturing engineers to open opportunities for potential internships and permanent employment for Penn State industrial engineering students.
