McGaughy Internship & Professional Development Center


The McGaughy Center manages the working relationships between interning CBE students, their supervising faculty and their internship employer.  CBE students follow a strategic progression when preparing for their required-for-graduation internship, 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 employers, by applying their technical and professional skills to projects and assignments.  Internships are a "win-win" for students and their internship employer.
