Internship Program

Internship Opportunities

Las Cruces Utilities Internships offer the same types of challenging assignments as our full-time employees and is an excellent opportunity to roll up your sleeves and make important contributions as a valued member of our staff.

The Las Cruces Utilities Internship Program is a competitive program that awards internships to new incoming, or current, full-time students pursuing an Associate Degree in Water Technology at the New Mexico State University Dona Ana Community College. This Internship pays for tuition and other reasonable education-related expenses, including a monthly stipend and paid on-the-job training to assist with educational and living expenses. That’s in exchange for up to 20 hours of work per week during semesters and 40 hours per week maximum during academic breaks.

In return, interns commit to working four to eight years with Las Cruces Utilities after graduation. The intern graduates will work in one of the following lines of business: Water Operations and Maintenance; Wastewater Operations and Maintenance; or Utilities Environmental. 

While the application period for the 2019 - 2020 Internship Program has closed, we encourage you to speak with your Guidance Counselor or Academic Adviser to start planning now. We encourage you to apply next year, when we will be accepting applications for  Fall 2020 - Spring 2021.
