Securing an Internship Through the Department

The department has a designated internship coordinator. The internship coordinator works with students and their academic advisors in identifying industries and establishing the best possible internship assignment that will add academic value to student experiential learning endeavors. Upon securing the internship for the student, the department will establish guidelines with the hiring industry on their expectations regarding its responsibilities for providing the intern with experience appropriate with their academic disciplines.

Students receive internship credit by enrolling in IM-317, 318 or 319 Cooperative Industrial Internship for 3, 6, or 9 credit hours respectively. Students are required to complete a minimum of 240 hours of approved supervised industrial work experience for each three hours of credit. The department has established guidelines published in the "Cooperative Industrial Internship Handbook" that outline requirements and procedures including application, work agreement, training schedule, supervision and evaluation. Please contact the department at (573) 651-2104 or stop by our office in Polytech 216 for more information.
