The purpose of the Industrial Internship Program (IIP) is to afford
undergraduate students from the Department of Mathematical and Statistical
Sciences an opportunity to gain some work experience before graduation.
Putting academic achievement to work, Industrial Internship Programs offer
undergraduate students paid work experience in industrial settings. The
placement through the Industrial Internship Program is for a continuous period
of 8, 12 or 16 months.
The IIP provides benefits to all stakeholders. Students from Mathematical and
Statistical Sciences have an opportunity to gain valuable work experience, see
concrete, practical applications of principles learned in courses, and gain
a realistic understanding of the professional qualifications industries need.
Employers have an opportunity to evaluate students as potential employees over
an extended period of employment. The training and orientation invested in the
students yield a return of solid research and development work. Additionally,
the program can foster closer interaction between the employers and the
university, making employers more aware of the educational opportunities and
ensuring that the program is responsive to the needs of employers.
