There are a number of ways to engage students, increase their understanding of the principles they learn in the classroom, and increase their job-readiness, all at the same time.  Practical experience in a workplace setting through internships and research projects are among them.

Research projects allow the students to advance the frontiers of knowledge and to increase their understanding of the process by which scientific discoveries are made and validated.  They are indispensable elements in the growth of a college and in  the cultivation of new researchers and instructors.  Dr. Reza Khanbilvardi, Director of NOAACREST at CCNY, will present the research aspect using the NOAACREST approach as an example.

Internships provide the student with experience in a workplace setting, performing activities that apply their knowledge in pursuit of a defined deliverable.  Students learn to produce outputs with specific quality standards and to work with professional colleagues, often in a team environment.  Dr. Manual Jimenez, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs at the University of Puerto Rico Mayaguez, will present the internship aspect using R2DEEP – the Recruitment, Retention, and Distance Engineering Education Program — and the University’s COOP Program as examples.
