Penn State’s E-SHIP offers students valuable ENtern opportunities
In Jamie Simmons’s professional opinion, there is no more effective way to learn than through hands-on experience. Penn State happens to share that vision. The entrepreneurial-centric engineer features the University’s unique engineering entrepreneurship program:
Penn State’s Engineering Entrepreneurship Program (E-SHIP) is offering students a unique opportunity to connect with tech-based startups. It’s all thanks to their Entrepreneurship Internship (ENtern) program. The opportunity pairs students on technology-focused trajectories with startups to form a partnership that benefits the student as much as the startup! Learning together, the intern is offered the chance to fully immerse his/herself in the process of harnessing the drive and determination to build a venture from scratch. All the while, the student is able to put their shiny new engineering expertise to the test with roll-up-your-sleeves experience. Engineers and entrepreneurs, like Jamie Simmons, applaud the ENtern program and look forward to more universities following suit with the idea.
