This course commenced from Semester 2 for Level III students (Academic year 2005/2006) in 2009.
The importance of an internship experience cannot be overstated. An internship makes the classroom’s abstract theories and learned examples concrete by placing the student in a real-life work situation. Internships are a proven way to gain real-world knowledge, skills, and experience while establishing important connections in the field. Internships and volunteer experiences make candidates more competitive in the job market and also provide an opportunity to see if the particular career field fits the student.
Joining a company as an intern provided the opportunity to work hands-on in a professional environment. Internships provide the building blocks that are needed for the future. Many internship opportunities help set the foundation for one’s career and they are great tools for improving one’s chances as a job applicant.
The internship training programme in the Faculty of Science offers students the opportunity to apply academic knowledge and skills in diverse corporate and state sectors, while earning academic credits. During this programme, the interns undergo full-time, structured on the job training in a variety of areas of their choice, i.e. finance, management, human resources, production, development, marketing, information technology, etc.
