Why do an Internship for Credit?

  1. Can be used to fulfill major or minor requirements in PitE.

  2. Provides more structure to the internship and incorporates a research component, which is also an excellent item to include on a resume.

  3. Some organizations may require students to get credit for an internship.

Research has repeatedly shown the importance of learning by doing. Internships can give students a chance to translate their academic knowledge to real world settings. Students will also gain practical tools such as improved listening and communication skills, data gathering and analysis, just to name a few, that will translate to jobs after graduation.
