A 3-semester internship (for credit) is a requirement for graduation.
The goal of these internships is to provide students with a complete immersion experience in a real-life laboratory. Students are expected to be involved in experimental design, performing research studies, interpretation and presentation of results, and problem-solving. The student is required to submit periodic reports to the MS Program regarding their internship projects and maintain at least a "B" average. During the internship the student continues to be a registered student.
Financial support: Some host laboratories are able to provide students stipends during the second year internship.
