U.S. News & World Report Names Florida Tech a Top 10 National University for Student Internships
MELBOURNE, FL—In March, U.S. News & World Report published the report, “10 Universities Producing the Most Interns,” ranking Florida Institute of Technology among the top 10 in the nation. The report identified the schools that produced the highest percentage of interns among their undergraduate students.
“The work of our Career Management Services has always been a source of great pride here. We are pleased to know that our opinion is supported by U.S. News & World Report, as we strive to ensure that Florida Tech students have the real-world skills they need to get great jobs after graduation,” said Florida Tech President Anthony J. Catanese.
The report also noted that with the growth of college graduates outpacing population growth by more than three-fold, those who seek employment immediately after graduation need to take extra steps while in college to set themselves apart from their peers. “The most logical step to take? Secure at least one internship before you graduate,” said the article.
Florida Tech was the smallest school in terms of bachelor’s degrees awarded in 2008-09 among the top 10 of 692 colleges and universities that provided internship data to U.S. News. The other nine schools ranked were University of Pennsylvania, Colorado School of Mines, American University, Seton Hall University, Duke University, Fordham University, University of Pittsburgh, George Washington University and Johns Hopkins University.
