ETIM 2020 Summer Internships
This past year brought unique and unforeseen challenges to our ETIM students. All of our students started in the Engineering & Technology Innovation Management program in January of 2020 and hit the ground running with their summer internship searches. With the changes brought on due to COVID-19, causing almost all companies to pivot to remote work and internships, our students had to flex in their search to find new and sometimes unexpected opportunities.
Our students worked hard and many landed internship roles with companies ranging from emerging start-ups to worldwide corporations, where they gained valuable experience by learning to adapt, network, and innovate in new and unexpected environments.
Additionally, the ETIM program partnered with a diverse group of companies to provide alternative summer projects to our students. The ETIM students developed skills by working through the design thinking process, which connects customer and user experience design with product and technology road-mapping to create an integrated plan for future growth and development.
We look back and celebrate the accomplishments of our 2020 ETIM students and look forward to seeing where our 2021 ETIM cohort will be working in this new year.
