Practical experience is an important part of an engineering education, and we strongly encourage students to pursue internships at companies both within and outside Nevada.
Students are eligible for up to three units of academic credit that can be applied toward the bachelor's degree program in electrical engineering as a senior technical elective.
To be eligible for credit, you must have at least sophomore standing within the department. You must also follow the steps below:
Additional internship requirements are listed below.
Prepare a pre-internship proposal and submit it to Dr. Henson. Your proposal must include:
Two internship agreements are required prior to beginning the internship.
If you are interning with a company that has participated in the electrical engineering internship program before, an agreement may already be on file. Dr. Henson can help you determine if you need to submit a new internship agreement.
You must submit a mid-term report to Dr. Henson.
You must submit a final report to Dr. Henson.
Your supervisor must also fill out an evaluation report at the end of your internship. It is your responsibility to make sure your supervisor fills out the online evaluation form.
If you are receiving credit for your internship, Dr. Henson will assign a grade based on your proposal and internships reports as well as your supervisor's evaluation of your work.
