Types of Internships
Career Services and Internships office provides variety of internships to students. This helps them to have an experience of the market outside in their required area of field.
Internships are of two types primarily:
- Credited Internship- Internship Course 498
- Non-credited Internship
Credit Internship- Internship Course 498
Students as required by their major must enroll for the Internship Course according to their course catalogue. Students are required to enroll for credit internships worth 3-6 credit hours, depending upon the Academic department via EMPOWER. This works exactly like a course registration.
Criteria for Internship Course Registration
- Students are ideally required to undertake internship in the summers after their junior year while they are transiting to their senior year.
- After completion of 70 credit hours of course work at the University.
- The duration of credit internships may vary between 6 to 12 weeks and follows the policies of academic council.
Some academic departments may allow the students to register for internship in spring and Fall as well, however; the discretion is held by the department Heads, which is most likely dependent on the number of registrations.
The Career Services and Internships Office also provides non-credited internships to students who are willing to have an exposure to a job environment. They will not be getting the credits as it would not be the registered course but what they take away from it is the learning from experienced professionals.
