Department of Internships and Career Development

Our Mission:

The Department of Internship and Career Development secures internship placements for AURAK students and builds skills directly suited to the task of job searching and career planning.

Our Services

The Department of Internships and Career Development is devoted to providing students with effective internship placements and to assisting students in achieving their early career goals. Services are available from the point of entry into the University throughout graduation. Services are designed to help students reach their potential in preparation to join the graduate workforce. This Department provides the following two areas of support.

  • Internships
  • Career Development

Internships

Students enrolled in degree programs in the School of Arts & Sciences, School of Business, and School of Engineering, are required to complete an internship. Undergraduate students must plan for this internship during their third year immediately prior to the semester in which they intend to do their internship. 

The internship program establishes a three-way partnership agreement among the American University of Ras Al Khaimah, an approved employment site, and the intern whereby the latter receives work experience under the supervision and guidance of a qualified professional. Supervised internship experiences provide an opportunity for students to synthesize, transfer, and apply learning gained through previous study and practice to all phases of the employer’s operation. The overall goal of the internship program is to expose students to the working environment and to provide the means for each student to mature both personally and professionally.

More information about the Internship program can be found in the AURAK Undergraduate Internship Manual available with the Department of Internships, Career Development and Alumni Affairs.

Career Development Services

AURAK is committed to providing students with a wide range of career services. Our services have been designed to assist students in all stages of career planning. Students are provided with career advising sessions, career-related workshops, internship/training search support, and employer engagement opportunities on- and off-campus.

Students are strongly encouraged to visit the Department of Internships and Career Development during their first year at AURAK and to continue working closely with this office to develop their career plan. Junior and Senior students are encouraged to visit this office at least twice every semester.
