METEO 495E Meteorological Off-Campus Research Internship (3 per semester/maximum of 6)

A student participates for at least 100 hours in an internship whose focus is a research project requiring applications of meteorological knowledge. This internship is normally completed after the junior year. To provide sufficient background for performing atmospheric research successfully, students must have completed at least nine credits of 400-level Meteorology courses. 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.
