As part of the level 8 all students are required to complete an internship in the second semester of 3rd year. The internship seeking process is very close to that of what its like to find a job within the industry in regards to application processes and interviews, however it is slightly easier as the college does internally advertise places to the students making the search a little easier.
Fortunately I myself acquired my internship very early on into the process. In April I will be joining the engineering team in the Leinster campus of A control and automation company. It is my aim to blog my experiences in aid of tracking my learning and also as a result to fulfill another aspect of the required of the internship (that being bi-weekly reports).
Till next time.
