Information Systems & Security

Western Technical College

Western Technical College’s Internship Program presents employers with a unique opportunity to get a preview of a student’s talent and level of expertise while the student applies what he/she learned in their coursework in a real-life setting. These beneficial relationships make both sides winners. All electronics and information systems students are required to participate in a 160-hour Internship as part of their Associate degree requirements. There is no cost to being an Internship host, and students understand that they will serve without pay to get the experience.
