The Higher Colleges of Technology (HCT) has a robust and well-developed internship and work placement program. All students in the Year 3 Business Programs are required to participate in a work placement program.

The program has a three-fold purpose. Students are exposed to the workplace and develop necessary soft/hard skills. In turn, employers are exposed to HCT students prior to a potential job offer. And finally, as work placement mentors faculty are able to visit and keep alive ties to industry. This has often resulted in sponsorships, meaningful industry projects, and presentations by industry leaders.

As part of their work placement and internship requirements, students are expected to write daily and weekly reflections on their progress. These blogs track and highlight their progress.
