Wed. Jan. 24 • 9 AM – 12:30 PM
While there are many benefits for students, faculty, and companies, industry internships at the graduate level are often arranged in an ad-hoc fashion and demand often outstrips supply. This workshop will examine the types of graduate level industry internships, explore the challenges faced in setting up a successful graduate internship program, and present strategies for their effective implementation.
Workshop Agenda (Subject to Change):
- Definition and types of graduate internships
- Benefits and challenges from the perspective of students, faculty mentors, university administrators, and companies
- Issues (and recommended strategies) that should be addressed when setting up an internship program
