 A practical training course is normally offered during the summer session of the third academic year of the curriculum. Students are placed at business corporations, government agencies, or industrial facilities to receive on-the-job training and to learn to adapt to the work environment.
 
Instead of the practical training course, students may be approved to enroll in an extended training program in the second semester of the fourth year, with continuation into the following summer session. During the training, students usually work on a project which addresses and solves a technical problem in industry.
 
SIIT has established student exchange programs with many foreign universities and organizations. Qualified students may take advantage of these programs. Students may request that credits of courses taken during the exchange period be transferred. In some cases, there is some financial assistance.

Details of the curriculum for each academic program are given in the following pages. For additional information, students may consult the individual programs.
