U.S. Co-op/Internship Programs*

Engineering Co-op Program

A LyondellBasell co-op is a type of internship that provides students valuable hands-on experience within their field of study, sometimes earning college credits. Our engineering co-ops work full-time during a single season: spring, summer or fall, with a target of at least two terms prior to graduation. View our FAQs for more information.

This program is specific for chemical, electrical, environmental, health and safety, and mechanical engineering students.

Corporate Internship Program

For our corporate business functions, we offer a highly energized summer work term to give students the experience they need. Our corporate office, LyondellBasell Tower, is located in the heart of downtown Houston. For more information, view our FAQs.

Corporate internships are offered in the following business functions: accounting, finance, and audit; information technology; global security; logistics and supply chain; procurement and distribution; and human resources.
