New Hampshire Advanced Manufacturing Partnership
Work-based Learning Program
The NH Advanced Manufacturing Partnership is a collaborative project between NH Community Colleges, NH Businesses, and the University of New Hampshire. NH AMP is built upon a Work-based Learning (WBL)-Career Training model that provides community college students paid work experiences that will advance them toward employment or transferring to a UNH 4-year degree program in engineering.
Advanced Manufacturing Internships will be available in Summer 2019 at several different NH businesses, as well as in Academic Research Labs on the UNH-Durham campus. The duration of these internships will be 8 weeks. Read about available opportunities here. You will indicate the opportunities you would like to be considered for in your online application.
Compensation for internships will be site specific (usually $15/hour).

Who should apply?
You should apply if you are a NH Community College student eligible for federal financial aid that is looking for an opportunity to use your classroom learning in a real-life setting. This opportunity is ideal for students who are close to graduating and would like hands-on manufacturing experience or for students who are transferring or interested in transferring to a UNH engineering degree program.
Why should you apply? What are the benefits of this program?
If you are selected for an internship and accept it, you will receive industry-standard compensation and will receive on-the-job training of critical occupation specific skills. You will have the opportunity to interact with your employer over an extended time (typically Summer) which could lead to opportunities to network with others in your field or possible future employment. Through NH AMP’s student community activities, you will receive support throughout your internship and beyond. You will learn about career and UNH transfer options and will receive support from NH AMP faculty and staff during and after your transfer to UNH. All sites that will take on an intern will receive tailored mentorship training and ongoing support to ensure that you are welcomed into a supportive and inclusive environment.
What happens after you apply?
After your application is received, it will get an initial review by NH AMP faculty and staff. It will then be passed on to the specific people associated with the opportunities you selected during the application process. The industry partner or lab manager will select applicants to interview and they will have the final decision on who receives an internship offer. NH AMP faculty and staff will stay in touch with you through the process and will be the official communicator of internship offers.
What is expected of selected applicants?
If you accept an internship position, NH AMP expects that you will hold full-time employment for the duration of your internship and you will hold the highest standards for workplace performance. You will be expected to participate in the program’s student community activities (weekly check-ins, group visits to industry sites or UNH campus) and a survey and/or interview to inform evaluation of the NH AMP program.
