Student University Development Opportunity (sUdo)

Real-world experience to augment your degree

More than just a job 

Student employment in the sUdo program is real world experience, not busy work or fetching coffee.

Our program focuses on mentoring and providing a hands-on experience within an enterprise environment. It’s unlike any other student employee program at the University of Utah. sUdo rewards the energy, talent, and creativity that students bring with professional respect, resume-building experience, flexible hours and great pay.

sUdo is an exciting, rewarding program to work in, and word has gotten out. The program has seen considerable growth in recent years – from 17 student employees in 2015 to over 90 (and counting) in 2021.


Begin your adventure

We're a place to learn, make friends, and launch a career. For some, the program is a stepping stone to full-time positions in a relevant field, and the future is bright. Companies in the Wasatch Valley generally pay graduating students more if they’ve had internship experience. Private-sector employers which have hired sUdo student employees include Adobe, Goldman Sachs, General Motors, Symantec, Boeing Space (Defense and Intelligence Systems), Premier, Galileo, Qualtrics, Raytheon and others.
