Earlier today I learned I was not selected for a particular internship. While I knew the actual division to which I applied was interested in me for my grades, publications, and Japanese ability, HR refused me because Ivy Tech is not ABET accredited. They also had trouble considering me for an internship because I already have an undergraduate degree though in a wholly unrelated field.
While disappointing, I am registered for summer classes, so progress will continue. At the end of December, I should complete my AS in Pre-Engineering (Electrical Engineering) and transfer its credits to IUPUI, which is ABET accredited, where I will complete my BS EE.
Most likely I will have my Ivy Tech Welding Certificate by then, too.
