ExCITe-ships are hands-on apprenticeships in industry. In general, the ExCITe-ships can last up to 6-weeks (3-4h/week), where trainees can shadow leaders within the company or group to gain valuable experience and exposure within the business. If you participate in an ExCITe-ship, we ask that you complete a short survey to help us improve ExCITe-ship opportunities.
