Summer 2017 Externship Program

The summer of 2017 brought the first ever MPGE Externship program for students to gain valuable internship experience with our industry friends and partners, all while on campus here in Norman. The program was truly a huge success with 20 projects being completed over the course of the two month program. All in all, 12 companies participated, along with 12 faculty mentors, 3 graduate assistants, and 65 undergraduate students. Students called this experience a “great opportunity to network with industry professionals,” and that it “exceeded expectations and urge fellow students to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity.” The students worked on projects provided with their faculty mentor, and regularly met with their company representatives to report on their findings and their research.
