Re: Academia and Industry
Internships are really important and are a true asset to students as well as to companies. Student interns get to gain hands-on experience before they graduate to know what they can and should expect upon graduation in the real working world. As for companies, they get to see if there are indeed any potential candidates whom they can score to provide a job opportunity later on. That same person can be nurtured much earlier to learn the ropes of the company so as to provide the best according to the expectations of the company to mould the most suitable candidate.

Academia and Industry
Another way that industry and academia relate is the way I went through school in the late-60s, early-70s. I lived near Tektronix and got a job there right out of high-school, at age 17. Wow! For a 17-year-old nerd, Tek was like a sci-fi adventure come true.

Tek offered  employment to some of these youth so that they could be offered the following deal: for each school year, Tek paid school expenses of books and tuition, and the student, upon graduation, was expected to put in a year at Tek for each school year supported. In addition, we students were given work at Tek during the summers (as "summer students") and during breaks between quarters. It was an "optimal" way to start in electronics!
