Each Illinois Professional Science Master’s student is required to have an internship during the program. Experiences range from lab work on campus, multiple duties with start-ups, and projects or positions with companies, non-profits, and government. Students are encouraged to have robust internship experiences combining their science and business knowledge. Each experience is unique and is intended to give the student a working knowledge of the industry, gain new networking relationships, and prepare the student for a professional career. Students share their experiences during the IL PSM Poster Showcase.

The Poster Showcase is September 25 at the College of ACES Library, Information and Alumni Center, 1101 S. Goodwin Ave., Urbana, 4-6 p.m. The event is open to the public. RSVPs are appreciated by September 20th to
