Title: Developing and Funding Undergraduate Engineering Internships


1
Developing and Funding Undergraduate Engineering
Internships
  • Theodore W. Manikas, Gerald R. Kane
  • Dept. of Electrical Engineering
  • The University of Tulsa

2
Why Internships?
  • benefits for all
  • undergraduate engineering students
  • industry sponsor
  • university sponsor

3
Internship Benefits for Students
  • practical applications of coursework
  • exposure to corporate issues
  • project management
  • finance
  • manufacturing
  • experience will help acquire and succeed in
    full-time employment

4
Internship Benefits for Industry
  • helps identify potential recruits
  • develops collaboration with university

5
Internship Benefits for University
  • enhances students engineering education
  • develops collaboration with industry

6
Establishing Internship Programs
  • identify potential companies
  • local professional societies
  • current university/industry collaborations
  • contact companies
  • e-mail with follow-up telephone call
  • on-site meetings with corporate staff

7
Funding Internship Programs
  • NSF programs (workshop at ASEE)
  • very competitive
  • state and local programs
  • industry match

8
Internship Program Example
  • Collaboration
  • University of Tulsa Electrical Engineering
    (TUEE)
  • Geophysical Research Co. (GRC)
  • Funding
  • 50 OCAST (state funding)
  • 50 GRC (industry match)

9
Corporate Contact with GRC
  • IEEE local professional society meeting
  • TUEE alumni current employees
  • looking for future engineers internships

10
Application for Funding
  • OCAST (Oklahoma Center for the Advancement of
    Science and Technology)
  • RD Student Intern program
  • prepare students for technical fields
  • support high-tech companies in OK
  • students work as interns in OK engineering
    industry

11
OCAST Project Requirements
  • 1 2 year projects
  • PI sponsoring university
  • Mentor sponsoring company
  • internship work done at company
  • work with full-time engineers on projects
  • part-time (10 hrs/wk) during school year
  • full-time (40 hrs/wk) during summer

  • 50 from OCAST (up to 30K/year)
  • 50 from company
  • may include mentor salaries as match
  • about 80 for intern salaries
  • other PI salary, travel, supplies

13
Intern Selection Process
  • undergraduate EE student at TU
  • post announcement for internship
  • resumes and interviews

14
Intern Project Duties
  • work on engineering project under mentors
    guidance
  • bi-weekly meetings with PI and progress reports
  • mentor submits intern evaluation sheet to PI at
    end of each semester

15
