Internship Program: Data Analytics | AIChE

AIChE has established a data analytics focused internship program that connects companies and potential interns. Companies assign their selected interns a hands-on project with a focus on data analytics, and a technical mentor. Interns participate in on-demand training to develop their communication and leadership skills, as well as technical expertise in such areas as Python, data visualization, statistical programming, and other technical topics.

As a capstone to the program, interns will communicate, through a final presentation:

  • How the new concepts learned connect to the work performed throughout the internship
  • Technical lessons learned and how the work will benefit future generations
  • Professional skills learned and how those skills will advance the intern’s career and contribute to success in the workforce
The statistics course was wonderful!
