ENGG 196 - Internship in Engineering

Semester Hours: 1-6
Periodically
Engineering majors who have been offered an internship may receive credit through this course if approved by the chairperson of the engineering department. The internship must be training for a position in which a college degree would be necessary for full-time employment and in which a major in engineering would be considered beneficial.

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
Successful completion of at least 18 s.h. in engineering with a engineering GPA of 3.0 or above and permission of chairperson of the Engineering Department. May be repeated for credit up to 6 s.h. The number of semester hours depends on the type of work and on the number of hours worked and will be determined by the chairperson. Generally, students can expect to receive 1 s.h. per 28 hours worked. At the end of the semester, students will write and present a paper on the engineering work that they completed in the internship position. Students will be expected to keep a journal on their experience and to meet with the faculty mentor assigned to the course a minimum of three times to review the journal and paper preparations. Semester hours earned count toward general degree requirements but do not satisfy engineering major requirements. Final grades will include both on-site and academic work. An on-site evaluation of “poor” will result in a final grade no higher than “C”.
