PEMM 128 Enterprise Experience Internship

This course provides credit for a full-time internship at an outside institution during a PhD program. The goal of this course is to provide students with real-world, hands-on experience with existing enterprises through internship during graduate school. Such experience will expose students to diverse career opportunities during graduate school, providing students will lead-time to focus and network in a field of interest prior to completion of their PhD.


For this course, the student will propose and arrange a paid or unpaid internship in an existing enterprise (industry, government, or other) in consultation with their Faculty Advisor (primary mentor) prior to enrollment. Course enrollment is concurrent with the internship and should be for a period of 1 or 2 consecutive terms. At the end of the internship, the student will make an oral presentation (with Powerpoint slides; approx. 20 minutes) to the PEMM community that addresses the nature of the enterprise they were engaged in, the problem they were assigned, and the results and impact of their project. The purpose of the presentation is to share lessons learned from the internship experience with the PEMM community. The presentation will be accompanied by a short but complete written report. Neither the presentation nor report should contain confidential information of the enterprise.


International students with F-1 status must request Curricular Practical Training (CPT) authorization with OVIS in order to participate in the course and the internship.
