Ph.D. Degree Requirements
Although the department does not have a formal internship program, many students find it useful to work in industry or a government agency during their doctoral program. Such an external internship is encouraged if it enhances a student's doctoral research, provides a basis of the Comprehensive Examination, or enriches the student's graduate education in some other specific manner.
Although formal approval for an external internship is not required, it should be planned with the full knowledge and cooperation of the student's advisor.
