An internship is a structured, supervised work experience that enables students to earn academic credit while gaining practical, professional exposure to a particular career field. Students are responsible for researching and selecting potential internship positions and initiating contact with employers. You must register and pay for an internship as you would any other course. Internship credit cannot be awarded retroactively.
All SCE students in a degree program can register for and complete an internship. If you are in a Bachelor’s program, you may complete two three credit internships. Associate degree students may complete one three credit internship. Internships will count towards your free electives and can support any major.
Internships are very important for anyone entering a new field!
