Every spring semester, IMICS offers an internship course with credits. However, if you are a Taiwanese Scholarship recipient, you are unable to take this course by regulation. The internship must be related to communications and you must acquire prior approval from Professor Tsung-Jen Shih before beginning the internship. You can register for the internship course before or after completing the actual internship. If you register for the internship course but do not complete the internship within the spring semester, you will receive an "incomplete" mark on your transcript. You are only allowed one “incomplete” mark this way on your transcript.
You may download all necessary internship forms on the IMICS website. After completing the internship, students should hand in (1) a journal of your daily work, recording the given tasks and responsibilities, (2) a report about your achievement and the things you have learned from the internship, (3) internship photos, and (4) 300-word abstract. Besides, your direct supervisor should offer an evaluation of you, including a score (This is very important and necessary) and a written description of your performance. Please refer to the website to view examples of other students.
The duration of the internship should be one month, full-time (i.e., 8 hours per day and 5 days a week). Your internship will be declared ineligible if you’ve worked fewer hours than originally specified, such as 3-4 hours each session, or if you’ve used a part-time job opportunity as your internship.
