The SCATE Center Industry Consortium-Partnership and Internship Program enables qualified students to attain an associate degree from Florence-Darlington Technical College while working for local industries. ATE Internships provide the student with a unique opportunity to gain academic and practical experience simultaneously. The participating student attends class approximately twenty hours each week and works at his or her sponsoring company up to twenty hours per week. The sponsoring company may choose to provide funds for the student’s books and tuition. In addition to an hourly wage, the company may provide a fringe benefit package at its discretion.


Through ATE Internships, the College and participating industries prepare students for rewarding careers as highly skilled technicians through a cooperative arrangement that combines classroom theory with practical, on-the-job experiences.
