Internships give students an opportunity to work for local
businesses in a work environment related to their major or
program area. The work experience gives students hands-on
learning and gives businesses the opportunity to help
educate the future workforce. The structure of internships
can be customized to meet the needs of a business.
Apprenticeship Programs combine on-the-job training
with Associate in Applied Science degree programs.
