For current network engineering majors, internships provide a path to translate classroom-based instruction to real-world scenarios, get a sense of the industry and make connections for future employment endeavors. We enforce and make it very compulsory for every student to get at least a month of field experience in their chosen field of career.
Certifications were once the end game for any individual seeking employment in I.T career fields. Today, certifications are simply part of the game in general.
