Method of Instruction
You will spend an average of one hour a week in seminar plus 12 hours a week at your work site. Your seminar will include discussions of the technical issues and other issues you encountered in your internship and a final internship report from you. Your final report should contain the following items:
- A brief description of the company, what it does, and how it is organized.
- A brief description of your job duties.
- A description of your projects.
- A discussion of the relevance of your work experience to your academic and professional development.
- Any special challenges that you faced.
Method of Evaluation
Your instructor, your on-site supervisor and you will sign an Internship Proposal and Agreement Form specifying the requirements for you to satisfactorily complete the on-site component of the internship. This form will include the following information:
- The name and address of the organization.
- The location where you will be working, if different.
- Contact information for the on-site supervisor.
- Hours and duration of the internship.
- A brief description of your job duties and/or projects. These should directly relate to your major.
- Procedures for evaluation and grading, including evaluations from the on-site supervisor.
In addition, you must successfully fulfill the requirements for the classroom component of the course.
At the end of the semester, the evaluation materials from the on-site supervisor must be submitted. These materials may be signed by the supervisor and submitted by the student or sent directly to the instructor, as specified on the Internship Proposal and Agreement Form. At a minimum, the supervisor’s evaluation should include certification that you worked the required hours and performed the agreed upon duties.
Based on the Internship Proposal and Agreement Form, your supervisor’s evaluation, and your performance in the classroom component of the course, your instructor will assign a grade of satisfactory or unsatisfactory.
