    See Section XIII for any exceptions to items 1 through 12. IV. Requirements

    A. Training Schedule Each intern is expected to complete the Preliminary Intern Information Sheet to formulate, in cooperation with the participating firm and program coordinator, a training schedule (Internship Site Information Packet). This Training Schedule is the most important document of the internship. The Training Schedule must be accurately completed in its entirety by the intern and then signed by the company supervisor. This Training Schedule gives a summary of the responsibilities of the intern and should be completed before the intern starts working. THIS TRAINING SCHEDULE MUST BE MAILED TO THE UNIVERSITY COORDINATOR NO LATER THAN THE END OF THE FIRST WEEK OF WORK. Along with the Training Schedule, you must submit an Interns Working Hours Schedule (Internship Site Information Packet). B. Internship Weekly Reports Each intern is required to submit, electronically, a Log of Activities and answers to the two questions on a weekly basis. FIRST WEEK The first weekly report is to be a description of the company. The description should include such information as: products produced, type of customers, and methods of manufacturing, construction, or graphic communication. If the company has a general booklet covering this information, submit that booklet or a copy of it in place of writing the description (First Week Report Packet). The first weekly report must also include an organizational chart of your internship site. For small companies, it is expected that you will show the entire organizational chart. For larger corporations, your chart should indicate only those areas where you are scheduled to work (First Week Report Packet). Be sure to note where your job or position is on the chart. Additionally, the first week you are to fill out a Weekly Activity Log. Proper format with examples is included in the First Week Report Packet.

Give approximate distances, i.e. 3 miles past McDonalds. 4. Good routes to your town without detours are appreciated. 5. Generally, the town is not hard to find, but details in town are what is needed. 6. On a separate sheet of paper, either include written instructions to go along with

    the map OR use electronic maps with directions. SECOND WEEK THROUGH END OF INTERNSHIP Send your weekly log report and answers to the two questions electronically to the internship coordinator assigned you (Diez, Weiss, Dirksen, or Blue). The following time schedule must be followed to insure orderly and clear communication between the intern, company supervisor, and the university coordinator. 1st week: Report promptly to work and perform assigned duties.

    visit with your company supervisor no later than one day following receipt of the visit notice with an electronic confirmation letter. If the visit is a video conference or a telephone call, a date and time will be set for that type of communication. Pertinent questions about your performance, strengths, weaknesses, areas for improvement, etc. will be discussed (Visitation Packet). If the visit is a site visit, the Internship Coordinator will spend about an hour or so at the sited and the following are encouraged as part of the visit: A short tour of the company facilities, an interview with your supervisor, and a short visit with you, Sometimes this part of the visit is done concurrently. If there is a conflict with the proposed visit by the Internship Coordinator, please call the Engineering Technology office immediately, and we will reschedule the visit. Please prepare an Itinerary as show in the Visitation Packet.

    VI. Evaluation

    The intern will be graded on a satisfactory/unsatisfactory basis. There will be two evaluations by your supervisor: one at the end of the 4th week and a final evaluation at the end of the Internship. A grade of incomplete will only be given if your internship is not completed by the end of the school term. The following criteria will be used in determining the interns final grade. 1. Accuracy, quality, and promptness of your weekly reports. 2. The recommendation of your company supervisor; based on mid-term and final

    evaluations (Supervisor Fourth Week and Final Evaluation Packet). 3. The recommendation of the university coordinator. Please review the company supervisors evaluation forms with your supervisor!! A formal letter requesting your supervisor's evaluation of your work and a formal thank you letter for providing and supervising your internship should be sent. VII. Additional Course Work

    Your internship is a time and energy demanding experience. Be advised NOT to take another course concurrently with the internship. Under extremely unusual circumstances, another course may be taken, but only with written permission of the company supervisor and the university coordinator.

    WEEKLY ACTIVITY LOG Week 3, June 1 June 5, 2001

    1. WHAT MISTAKES DID YOU MAKE? HOW DID YOU HANDLE THE SITUATION? I encountered several mistakes/problems trying to alphabetize and print out an itemized version of the job bag list. Every single client had to be printed out individually; the itemized list was not printed out all at once. The reason for so many problems was because I was unfamiliar with those functions on the program. Eventually, I was able to do both, the alphabetizing aided tremendously in setting up for the itemization. For a long time, I tried to find a way to print out the entire itemized version in one shot, but I was unable to find an option to do so. Therefore, taking the only way out, I set a page break after each individual client and then printed. Furthermore, I had to use the print function before printing each page. Due to the fact the document was so large, it took quite some time to produce the itemized version. 2. GIVE A DESCRIPTION OF THE MOST INTERESTING INCIDENT OR EXPERIENCE YOU HAD DURING THE WEEK. The most interesting part of my week, was producing the job bag documents. Coming to understand the necessary organizational work that takes place just to prepare jobs for disposal was incredible. Working on the documents, I became more familiar with the Microsoft Excel application. In turn, continuing to expand my software knowledge.
