We look for every opportunity to give our students a competitive edge. That’s why the department has a designated internship coordinator who works with students and their academic advisors in identifying industries and establishing the best possible internship. Then, we establish guidelines with the hiring industry on their expectations to provide the intern with experience appropriate with their academic disciplines.

In addition to invaluable experience, students receive internship credit by enrolling in IM-317, 318 or 319 Cooperative Industrial Internship for 3, 6, or 9 credit hours respectively. Students are required to complete a minimum of 240 hours of approved supervised industrial work experience for each three hours of credit. Contact us at (573) 651-2104 or Polytech 216 for more information on requirements including application, work agreement, training schedule, supervision and evaluation.


We work in tandem with local industry and national partners, so our students have every opportunity in securing the internship that will add academic value and experiential learning to their college career. Companies interested in securing student interns will provide a detailed position description and specify the background and academic skills of the individual(s) they seek.
