SRS Related Internship Links
The SRNS Internship Program provides an opportunity for students attending two-year technical colleges and four-year colleges/universities up to the doctoral level to gain hands-on learning experiences related to their field of study. The goal of the internship program is to help bridge the gap between academic study and its application in professional practice. Participation in an internship assignment offers students a glimpse into a professional work environment, while networking with both newly minted and veteran professionals.
Each student will be assigned a mentor, who will be primarily responsible for developing meaningful work projects during the internship. However, it won’t be uncommon for other organizations to “share” a student, thereby creating a richer and more diverse experience. Internships not only benefit students, but the company as well. The benefits, from the company’s standpoint, include filling its jobs pipeline with skilled workers who have already been acclimatized to the company’s culture.
