About American Electric Power Internship Program

The American Electric Power Internship is designed as an abbreviated version of a full-time position at the company, gearing interns for later entry into the company. Interns enrolled in the computer science track receive practical experience in web development, script writing, programming, database development, and more. Engineering interns work with analyzed workflow, interpreted air permits, and benchmarked data. 


Full-time students in a college/university program with a 3.0 GPA+ are eligible for the AEP co-op and internship program. Some departments may also require applicants to be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident; others will consider students who are eligible for temporary employment in the U.S.

If applicants are engineering students, their respective school program must be accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).

Applicants must have completed junior year in college. Co-op program applicants must be at least in sophomore year and/or have completed two classes in their major. As a co-op student, applicants can expect to complete at least two, non-consecutive work assignments while you're at AEP.


To be eligible for the internship program, applicants must have completed their junior year of college. To be eligible for the co-op program, applicants must be in their sophomore year of college and/or have completed two courses in their designated major.
