Professional Practice Advisory Committee

This committee is responsible for administering the Professional Practice Co-Op and Internship programs for Purdue University. It should continuously monitor the industrial assignments of students to insure that they provide the student with education-related work experiences. The committee must make sure that the employment program fits the objective of the academic curriculum, and that parallel to this, the financial returns to the students are in line with their developing capabilities.
