An internship is an experiential learning activity designed to help students apply academically learned concepts, theories, principles, and skills while working in an industrial or business environment.  Students will have the opportunity to increase their marketability as well as their technical knowledge and managerial/interpersonal skills in their area of concentration by participating in the day-to-day operation of a specific industry or business.  Graduate students must link the internship directly to their program of study.

The work description and specific activities of the internship will be made jointly by the internship coordinator at the School of Technology, the site supervisor at the cooperating business or industry, and the student.  The internship program is a directed quality experience designed uniquely for each business/industry partner as well as student intern.
