Undergraduate students in the department are required, as part of their studies, to undergo training in a professional capacity at a company in Lebanon or abroad. Such training is an integral part of the program (EECE 500: Approved Experience) and is typically done during the summer after the third year of studies.This experience consists of an eight-week internship with a professional organization that provides opportunities for training and exposure to the real engineering world. Typical venues for such experiences have to be approved by the department and include local, regional, and international companies.The FEA Career Development Center provides advice and services to assist students in securing summer internship positions. The website of the FEA Career Development Center is: http://www.aub.edu.lb/fea/fea_home/career_center/Pages/home.aspx. In order to sharpen their communication and professional skills, students are required to submit at the end of their training a written report describing their experience.
