Internships are a vital way for students to transfer course theory, concepts, and skills from the graduate-level classroom to their career.
At ITU, we believe internships are a vital way for students to transfer course theory, concepts, and skills from the graduate-level classroom to their career. For this reason, our students participate in an internship starting in their first trimester as a core part of the curriculum for all of master degree programs as affirmed by the university’s Academic Quality Committee (AQC). Students are allowed to participate in a part-time internship counts for one credit hour or a full-time internship for three credit hours with a maximum of ten credit hours allowed per degree (pre-Fall 2020 admitted students), and a maximum of nine credit hours allowed per degree (for students starting Fall 2020 or later).
As part of the American STEM Initiative, admitted students will have access to the ITU Internship Opportunity Board, a program-exclusive, curated database that allows students to find internships with our local business partners and surrounding businesses. Benefits of internships include a boost in self-confidence, industry and academic networking, opportunities to explore various career options and develop marketable skills.
