Options for Working With Students
- Student Internships: Internships provide students with a hands-on learning experience that combines practical application, observation, professional opportunities and mentorship.
- Project Based Collaboration involves students working on a problem or project based on the what they’ve learned in a previous course and/or courses. This is different than an internship since the focus is for a specific project or problem to solve and requires the assistance of a faculty member serving as a mentor. Learn more »
