Aurora Interns

“I sought out Aurora to contribute to cutting edge aerospace research and development projects and did just that during my internship. After seeing how engineering programs at Aurora start and meeting creative team members across the organization, I returned to Aurora full-time. My work now spans nearly every stage of the engineering design and development process. I love the continuous flow from conceptual design and prototype fabrication to field testing and customer demonstrations”

Mechanical Systems Design Engineer at Aurora.


Most internships last 8-10 weeks, and our summer program culminates in a company-wide presentation of your work. Many interns meet our CEO!


Interns may receive housing and transportation allowances and are eligible to take advantage of Aurora’s 401K program and flexible work policy.


Aurora interns are paired with a mentor who guides you through your work and helps you integrate into Aurora’s culture and develop new skills.


In addition to what you’ll learn as part of your work assignment, Aurora also offers workshops and lunch-n-learns to help you get the most of out your time with us.


As part of our summer program, we host virtual and in-person activities where you meet other interns and employees. Games and prizes included! You’re sure to leave with plenty of Aurora swag.


All Aurora locations welcome interns. West Virginia and Mississippi focus on manufacturing, while Virginia and Massachusetts focus on autonomy, mechanical engineering, operations, and more. Some internships are fully remote.
