CEA’s internship program includes a personalized internship placement and a flipped classroom-style online academic course. Your internship work schedule may vary depending on industry standards for your career field and will be determined after you arrive.
The required internship course has been designed to help you make the most of your internship and launch your transition to professional with the refined and strengthened career skills employers are craving. The course features one hour of face-to-face coaching sessions per week during your internship and includes additional self-directed course content, activities and assignments equivalent to about 30-40 hours total. You will automatically be enrolled in the internshipe course upon acceptance of your internship placement.
The internship course is a variable credit course, providing you the flexibility to earn between 3-6 semester credits for your internship, over 8 or 12 weeks. Engineering internship placements are available for 12 weeks only. The 3 credit internship option includes the required online hybrid course and a minimum of 120 hours at your internship placement. For each additional 40 hours that you work at your internship placement, you may choose to earn 1 additional credit for a per credit fee. Earning additional credits are not required. The credits align to internship hours as follows:
- 3 credits: minimum 120 placement hours + internship course
- 4 credits: minimum 160 placement hours + internship course
- 5 credits: minimum 200 placement hours + internship course
- 6 credits: minimum 240 placement hours + internship course
You will identify the credit option that works best for you during the placement process. We strongly recommended that you apply as soon as possible. Internship positions are selective; students who demonstrate both professionalism and commitment throughout the process are most successful in securing placements.
Career Coaching & Placement Process
Once you’ve submitted your application, your career development adventure will begin! The placement process is more than just securing an internship placement. You will engage in a career exploration and coaching journey with your internship coach to help you to identify your ideal professional pathway. During this time, you will receive 7-10 hours of professional career coaching via video, email and workshops.
You will also engage in additional interviews with our in-country internship coordinator and your potential host site supervisor. The host site retains the final decision regarding placements, so it’s important that your interviews reflect your maturity, adaptability, curiosity, and commitment to both your career interests and the host organization.
Upon successfully completing your in-country internship coordinator interview, CEA guarantees you a placement that will support the personal, professional, and cross-cultural learning objectives you have identified in your career coaching process. All placements will be secured two weeks prior to arrival.
If you have confirmed an internship placement through independent contacts, we can also support you in securing important logistics such as visas, housing, and credit. Contact an admissions counselor for more details.
