During the fall, the UGRAD team launched a campaign called Mission: Internship to help students prepare for intern experiences during the spring 2015 semester. This initiative went a long way to help many UGRADs think about their professional development goals and successfully secure impressive opportunities to hone their skills and apply their knowledge in a real-world context. All of our students have worked diligently to find opportunities that will help them gain a better understanding of their respective fields of study, which include: Engineering, Design, Radio Broadcasting, Law, Mathematics, Psychology, Nutrition and more.
