Prerequisite: IE 2213

IE 2403 3.0
IE Technology Internship
This course is supervised work experience in the industrial engineering technology field. Students will utilize skills and knowledge obtained from IET courses. A weekly journal entry of the student's learning will be required. The student must complete at least 115 hours of work experience at the internship site over 15 weeks. The student will also be required to complete a journal entry each week. Students desiring to take this course must make their own internship arrangements with a company approved by the IET program (list available) or request that the company of their choosing be approved by the IET program Coordinator. Signing up for this course does not guarantee an internship. Students are responsible for applying for internships at desired companies. PLEASE NOTE: While at the internship site, the student is treated as if actually working for the company. It is imperative to be on time and to follow the rules and policies of the work site. Failure to comply with the rules and policies may be grounds for discontinuing the internship.
Prerequisite: 6 IET courses, minimum grade C and an IET major.
