METEO 495B Meteorology Private Sector Internship (3 per semester/maximum of 6) Internship focusing on meteorological problems and applications pursued by private sector companies.

METEO 495B Meteorology Private Sector Internship (3 per semester/maximum of 6)

A student participates for at least 100 hours in an internship with a private sector company that focuses on problems or applications that use meteorological information. This internship is normally completed after the junior year. Given the focus of this internship and the paper requirement to relate the internship experience to a 400-level meteorology course, students must have completed the required course on synoptic meteorology. After the internship has been completed, the student writes a paper based on the contract posted on the Department of Meteorology website. This paper normally is evaluated by the student’s Meteorology Department academic advisor. The course grade depends on this evaluation combined with the assessment provided to the advisor by the student’s internship supervisor.
