Internship program

The objective of the eight-week Summer Internship Program is to provide students an opportunity to acquire practical experience in the agribusiness field. Students are placed in active agribusinesses throughout the country to obtain
an integrated view of the business, as well as work and view the operations at each department. Students use classroom theory in the practical application during the eight weeks. Students are required to submit current and final internship reports that reflect operations of the company, the student’s role in the workplace, suggest future development, as well as make an oral presentation of the internship.

An industry internship is a specialized work experience, designed to provide students with real-world application of their growing knowledge in the agribusiness sector. Students should use their internships to utilize the concepts or principles from the core courses taught at the ATC. The eight-week program is a valuable portion of the students’ education and effectively prepares them for professional careers.
