Student Internship Perspective
Building Quality Internship & Co-Op Programs for Steel-Related Companies
The Association for Iron & Steel Technology (AIST) strives to be a valuable resource for the steel industry, and to build professional networks for sharing information. Among these efforts, and supported by the AIST Foundation, AIST is endeavoring to better understand and share how to build quality internship and co-op programs for steel-related companies.
In August of 2019, AIST issued a survey to students that have been placed into internships by the Association. AIST also solicited past attendees of the University-Industry Relations Roundtable, including Human Resource contacts at steel-related companies and faculty members (who place interns with steel companies), to issue the survey to their students.
