The foundation for a great relationship

Our Internship Agreement is signed by both you, the supervisor, and your newly hired engineering intern. This mutual agreement forms the foundation for the professional relationship you will forge with one another. Each of your roles and responsibilities to one another during the course of the internship are clear and agreed on in advance.
