EPS 450 Internship

This course is available to seniors who wish to gain experience in an industrial/company setting.  Students will independently explore the practical applications of physical principles learned in the classroom.  To be eligible to take this course, a student must be a junior or senior EPS major in good academic standing.  Upon completion of the internship, a student will be awarded three credits, Pass/Fail.  The three credits may count toward one of the two required semesters  of research for an Applied Physics major.
