All Milestone C programs are designed and instructed by high-ranking industry professionals to create internship-style experiences in a variety of STEM fields. Standard, classroom-style lectures are minimized to the maximum extent possible (less than 20% of each program). Each program is built around a hands-on capstone project or exercise emulating real-world industry practices.
