Engineering Getting An Internship after getting B.S. in mathematics

  1. Dec 11, 2016 #1
    A few years ago, I graduated from Wheaton College with a B.S. in Mathematics; my objective is to be a mathematician in engineering that helps mechanical engineers with their mathematical/statistical modeling. Since I graduated, I have been looking for internships in Chicago: Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get one while I was in school b/c none of the ones which were available weren't in Chicago or my field of interest. So, I tried Argonne Labs, Applied Materials, and some other companies, but they all want people who are Phd candidates. So, how can I get an internship at this juncture, and what kind of engineering company will hire me? Thanks for responding.

    Just curious :

    (1) Why do you think that mechanical engineers would need any help ?

    (2) What help could you actually give when you have zero technical knowledge ?

    Sorry to butt in, but you can do an MS oR PHd in COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING with a focus on Computational mechanical engineering. There are many programs like that.
