At Arup, our internships are a chance to join teams working on inspiring projects that contribute to a sustainable future. Internship opportunities are currently available in our Hong Kong and mainland China offices yearly. However, students can register their interest in an internship in one of our other country offices in East Asia by emailing the office directly.

Students at universities or school in Hong Kong can apply for:

  • Two-month placements for school or university students during the summer vacation (either northern or southern hemisphere summer)
  • Mid-degree placements of up to a year for students on ‘sandwich’ courses
  • One to two-week-long work experience placements for secondary students interested in engineering.

Students at universities in mainland China can apply for a three-month summer placement during their long vacation. Please follow us on WeChat for more information.
