Internship Program

The MIC Internship Program is a work-based, applied learning, educational experience designed to be a collaborative model involving the students, business partners, academic instructors and the internship coordinator. The program is an opportunity for the students to receive on-the-job training in a real-world setting from skilled professionals.

The MIC internships are the training and experience components of the curriculum for MIC programs. During the internship program, students will be exposed to the hard skills and soft skills of these curricula in an active, applied and hands-on environment. The experiential learning that the students receive in the internship program will provide academic and social skill development required by today’s employers.

Business partners will be provided with student resumes and will select those students that they wish to interview. Interviews will be held in March. After interviewing students, the business partners will rank students in regard to their hiring preferences. Students will be placed according to these rankings. Business partners will be notified during the month of April.

The evaluation and assessment model for The MIC Internship Program is designed to be a collaborative effort of internship mentor/manager, student, and internship coordinator. This model is aligned to authentic, competency- and performance-based elements.

Educational outcomes for The MIC Internship Program are aligned to the Partnership for 21st Century Skills (P21) and to the technical competencies developed in collaboration with industry partners.
