Internships

McGaughy Internship & Professional Development Center

ss

The McGaughy Center manages the working relationships between interning CBE students, their supervising faculty and their host internship company.  CBE students follow a strategic progression when preparing for their required-for-graduation internships, including seminars, cover letter and resume preparation, communication with faculty, preparation of contractual documents, and much more. 

Internships allow students to enhance their classroom education with real world experiential learning, while adding value to hosting internship companies, by applying their technical and professional skills to projects and assignments .  As such, internships are a "win-win" for students and their hosting internship companies, with both gaining valuable benefits.

Internship Seminar

CBE students are required to attend an Internship Seminar prior to entering the internship program.  One seminar session is offered each semester.

The date for the Fall 2014 semester is:

Thursday, October 30th, Hiner 207 at 3:30 p.m.
