Rylin Medcoff

Hands-on internships are an important component of the Race Track Industry Program (RTIP) experience. In fact, internships are so important, they are required for students to graduate. These training opportunities allow students to take their classroom education and apply it to the real world.  All-important connections with industry stakeholders are also a key part of the internship experience.

“Internships align with the University of Arizona’s Pillar 1 – the Wildcat Journey” noted Robert Hartman, RTIP endowed chair.  “ACBS has also placed high value on experiential learning as part of its strategic plan and we are pleased our students can take part in these invaluable experiences.”  

Here is a snapshot of Summer 2023:
