General internships at NJIT are work experiences that may be related to a student’s major and provide a learning experience. Work assignments vary in length, and most often coincide with a semester or the summer. Assignments may be paid or unpaid. At the discretion of the employer, a travel or meal allowance may be given in lieu of wages. There is no formal faculty involvement in an internship, although a student may choose ton consult a faculty member for advice and perspective on the work assignment.
