    Internship Description: Put your writing skills to use as an intern in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The ECE Department at Illinois is among the largest units on campus, with more than 100 faculty members and 2,300 students. The transistor laser, sound on film, plasma TVs, fiber optics, the LED, and the transistor are some of the many major inventions with roots at ECE Illinois.

    The department regularly hires interns to work in its communications office. This is a paid internship that involves working 15-20 hours a week. Duties include writing for the department’s Web site and publications, crafting news releases and Web site content, and assisting with other communications-related projects. We are particularly interested in anyone with video production experience.
