However, the Department shall follow specific criteria set by employers, if any. Nomination does not guarantee a job but the final decision rests with the company.

Students could also find their own summer internship. For self-sourced internship, students may send their Training Report to the Department to apply for fulfilling the requirements of CIVL3020.
