    MEM students have exposure to industry through internships and class projects. These MEM students worked with Eaton Corporation for their Six Sigma project.

During the Master of Engineering and Management program, students can participate in paid internships with local companies. Although this is not required for graduation, the exposure and experience gained can prove to be a wonderful opportunity for the students who choose to participate.

Through these internships, students gain hands-on professional experience, develop marketable skills, grow networks, as well as practice dialogue for career interviews. 

Plus, there is a possibility for mentorship within the company from experienced and knowledgeable professionals.
