Do you know what SI students were up to this summer?

Do you know what SI students were up to this summer? Many of them were working hard in their PEP internships doing some pretty amazing things for some great organizations in the U.S. and abroad!

Did you know that these students have been conducting some pretty great presentations on their internship experiences at SI@Work over the past 2 months?

If you were unable to attend the SI@Work presentations and want to learn more, here’s a quick glance at a few of those experiences…

• Designed interface screens for NASA

Want more? Don’t worry, you can access all of the SI@Work presentations online at http://www.si.umich.edu/careers/internships.htm. Search by Term/Year: Summer 2009.

Each student has created a one-page ePortfolio where they describe where they worked this summer, including goals/objectives and outcomes.

Under their names, you can click on their SI@Work presentation to learn even more about their experiences i.e., tasks/accomplishments, learning outcomes, valuable SI courses, critical skills, trends in the field, company culture, and the impact this experience had on their career goals. Some of these presentations take a minute or so to open, so please be patient.
