Anglo Education Services – Frequently Asked Questions

What is the advantage of this internship program? 

This is an exceptionally valued-added option for the otherwise entirely online Master of Engineering graduate program. This special program provides students with an experience in a dynamic global setting. Through UConn’s long-term partner Anglo Educational Services in London, and potentially other partners in the United Kingdom, we have a portfolio of British engineering firms where our students will practice the knowledge they learned and potentially become long-term contributors to their profession. To have paid internships will certainly increase the equitable accessibility to the program by a broader range of students,” says Yuhang Rong, Associate Vice President for Global Affairs. 

Will my internship count toward my degree? 

Students will earn credit that will count toward the Master of Engineering degree. This internship takes the place of a capstone project. 

How long is the Internship program? 

The student will start with their Master of Engineering semester in the United States completing course work online and then the following semester they will move to London and work in a 6-month paid internship with a London-based company. This credit-based internship will develop their practical and professional skills. 

Can I apply for one of these programs if I do not have an Engineering major? 

Students interested in pursuing any of the concentrations in the Master of Engineering degree program at UConn must apply to the UConn Graduate School. If you have any questions, please contact engrcaee@uconn.edu and we’ll be more than happy to help guide you through the process. 

Qualifications 

A typical applicant will have the following minimum qualifications: 

  • Baccalaureate (B.S.) degree from an accredited institution in an approved engineering or STEM discipline  
  • Note: If your baccalaureate degree is not within engineering, please contact the Center for Advanced Engineering Education office at engrcaee@uconn.edu for further assessment 
  • A cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better for the entire undergraduate record or
