Students undertake a significant experiential learning opportunity, typically with an industrial company that provides electrical services or manufactures electrical products. The internship represents an educational strategy that links classroom learning and student interest with the acquisition of knowledge in an applied work setting. Through direct observation, reflection and evaluation, students gain an understanding of the internship site’s work, mission, and audience, how these potentially relate to their academic study, as well as the organization’s position in the broader industry or field. Students will produce a critical reflection on their internship experience demonstrating how they have addressed specific learning goals.
A student must complete all their academic credits and requirements before they embankment into internship program. Students are responsible for securing their own internships but should contact the Career Services Office / the Department Office for assistance and resources to identify and apply for opportunities of interest. Students will participate in an internship for at least three weeks and no less than 120 hours of supervised work. The students work at the industry will be evaluated through the daily journal and a standard rubric marked by the industry supervisor. This evaluation will be complemented by the evaluation of the students’ work presented to the internship coordinator in the department.
