Students who wish to take advantage if this opportunity must find their own internship by contacting organizations or businesses that they would like to intern with. Students currently receive 1 hour of credit for each 40 hours they work. Please check out the internship manual at the TEC website (link below). If you are interested in doing an internship you need to read this over and get the included form filled out and then bring it to Dr. Scanlin for approval.
