An industrial internship is an on‐the‐job assignment that corresponds with an Intern’s instructional program. Through the interaction and integration of academic studies and occupational experiences, the Intern is able to enhance his/her academic knowledge, professional preparation and personal growth.

The opportunity to engage in productive employment under competitive conditions in a realistic environment can provide Interns with insights, which enrich their educational experiences. An internship provides an opportunity for the Intern to earn income while engaging in employment that is meaningful and relevant to present academic studies and future career goals.

Talk with your advisor to determine if an internship is required or recommended for your program of study.
