Student Participation

Students are selected into the program through two screening processes. First, they are screened academically after their sophomore year. This is primarily an effort to ensure that students are academically qualified to take upper-division courses. A second screening takes place through an interview process during which company member representatives interview the students applying for the program. The goal of this screening is to make every effort to insure that the students are qualified and ready for future internship placement.

Testimonials

My job is to provide on-site computer support while fielding a system upgrade to the Solidworks software package currently in use. The company got an employee that is knowledgeable in a field they needed and dedicated to the project without taking valuable staff away from projects they are better suited to and I got experience fielding a system, evaluating hardware and software upgrades, working with a team of busy professionals and planning and working to a deadline.
