CNE 484 – Undergraduate Internship Fall 2021

CNE 484 is the internship course for construction engineering students as part of the undergraduate curricular requirement.  Internship experiences are intended for summer.  If you need to enroll for the fall/spring internship course be sure to have approval from the Program Chair before submitting the internship documentation.

Course registration is required as well as course payment.  The internship experience (320 work-hours) must be in the semester in which you are registered.  Students pursuing an unpaid internship, outside of ASU, will need to check to see if there is an Unpaid Student Placement Agreement (SPA) is on file.  If not, an SPA will be needed in addition to the DocuSign submission.

F-1 Curricular Practical Training (CPT)

Curricular Practical Training (CPT) is a type of off-campus employment authorization for F-1 visa students. If you have an internship offer or you are thinking about completing an internship during your program at ASU please use this page as a guide. To be eligible for CPT you must have maintained F-1 status for a minimum of one academic year (two consecutive semesters) and meet all eligibility requirements. For eligibility requirements read through the SSEBE CPT Internship Guide for your program and the ISSC website.

If you are utilizing the internship to qualify for Curricular Practical Training (CPT) through ISSC you will be responsible for familiarizing yourself with ISSC CPT requirements and facilitating the paperwork.  Documentation about the SSEBE’s Renege Policy

Renege – (verb) To go back on a promise, undertaking, or contract.  Students should never accept a job with the intention of turning it down if “something better” comes along. Not only is it inconsiderate and unprofessional, it also reflects poorly on Arizona State University and might negatively impact future ASU student opportunities with that employer. Also, employers communicate with each other and you will likely damage your reputation.

After you have given your decision careful consideration and accepted an offer, stop looking. Inform other employers who have extended offers that you have accepted another position. Don’t accept additional interviews or job solicitations. Please refer to NACE’s Playing Fair…Your Rights and Responsibilities as a Job Seeker to become familiar with Principles for Professional Practice.

Students who renege on a job offer will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Reneging is grounds for exclusion from CPT and requests for switching employers will not be considered or processed.

Academic Integrity Policy

Any student who has a sanctioned academic integrity violation is NOT eligible for counting the internship experience in their iPOS.  Also, students found to be misrepresenting circumstances regarding employment or knowingly misleading faculty and staff regarding employment will have not have their CPT paperwork processed.
