Questions regarding conflicts with internship?

May 11th, 2012 § 0 comments

A few students have asked similar questions regarding the internship.

Q: We were wondering about the internship that the first place team gets. Both of our team members will be gone for the summer for various reasons. We weren’t sure if we can still do the competition or if we could do it but not take first. We just wanted to make sure that we are applicable to enter the competition.

A: The internship is not mandatory so don’t let that stop you from entering. Since the goal is to have students follow through with their designs, if you were to win first it would eliminate that pedagogical intent. However, it would be conceivable that you could “forfeit” the internship. In this scenario, you would take first place prize money, but runner up would pick up the internship and develop their project. Thanks for your interest and question.

Q: I am interested in participating in the design competition. Is it possible to participate in this and attend the Mexico studio this summer? Will that conflict with the internship?

A: It would work out as long as one team member is available for continuity. The other team member could take a leave and then shift to part time. The internship is not mandatory.
