Internship programs are designed to provide students an opportunity to apply theoretical knowledge gained through classroom learning in a real-world environment.  Interns have the opportunity to develop competencies within his/her chosen profession, while earning credit towards graduation.  Internships provide learning experiences not available in a classroom setting that build career-related experience in a new area.

Internship opportunities can also allow for career path change or serve as an entry point for students who are attempting to break into EM.  The value that an internship brings cannot be missed, as 82% of graduating seniors will have completed at least one internship, according to Mark Oldman, co-founder of Vault, and author of Best 109 Internships.  As a result of this information, Mr. Oldman states that “in the United States an internship is no longer an optional benefit, but an essential stepping stone for career success.”
