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 10 credit hours per degree allowed.
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.
