For all degree programmes within the Faculty, IUEA’s links with industry help to provide internship training and work placements for students. Internships are compulsory for all students as per the requirement of the National Council for Higher Educ ation (NCHE) of Uganda.
To meet the requirements of accreditation by the NCHE of Uganda and also to complement the theory and practical study at IUEA, a well-structured internship programme, in collaboration with industry, has been incorporated into the curriculum. The structures of all the programmes offered by the Faculty of Science and Technology include three periods of training
each of 10-15 weeks.
The main aims and objectives of the internship programme are to provide:
- Enhanced employability
- Interpersonal and social skills
- A strong platform for exploring the interrelationships between theory and practice
- Career preparation
- Insight into the world of work Personal development
- Strong leadership and technical development
This Internship programme will further enhance student’s employability. In many cases the same company at which students had internship training will offer them employment as soon as they graduate. In any case, students will gain an invaluable insight into the world of work as technologists and be better equipped to position themselves for the careers they seek.
The vision of the faculty, in line with the vision of the university, is to be the best faculty of science and technology in Africa.
