Hands-on experience and skill development is a key component of ITU’s pedagogy. We recognize how important internships are in transferring course theory, concepts, and skills from a graduate program to a career in the student’s field of study. For this reason, we are committed to linking the classroom with relevant industry experience.
ITU is proud to offer a strong internship program that is required for all students in graduate degree programs. Internships are managed through enrollment in INT 593, a course that may be taken for a maximum of ten credit hours over the course of an academic program. ITU reviews each internship request on an individual basis to ensure that it is consistent with the student’s coursework and academic policies.
