In collaboration with local NGOs and industry partners, the Science Unit has developed a new practicum course, SCI 3008: Internship in Environment and Sustainability. This course will help students to gain an understanding of “real-world” workplace dynamics and administrative skills by providing them with the opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills in the context of environment and sustainability through an formal internship with a local partner.


Students will be expected to apply their scientific literacy, problem solving, and communication skills in a practical context under the supervision of both Science Unit and partner staff. Ultimately, students may be able to refine their career goals through critical analysis of the internship experience and provide evidence of how they can apply what they have learned during their university experience to future employers or post-graduate schools.


**In collaboration with the Office of Student Affairs, we explore and fully utilize internship opportunities available for students. Apart from this new internship course, students will also be equipped with essential skills and knowledge applicable to internships and future career via the LU Glocal Professional Development Scheme (GPDS).
