Applied Learning

In Foundry College’s required applied learning course, students use foundational future-proof skills to analyze real-world professional scenarios.

Integrating Knowledge & Skills Through Internships

Relate Learning to the Workplace

As part of every Foundry College course, students practice applying their new knowledge and skills to real-world workplace scenarios. Instructors integrate hands-on exercises into each lesson, and students engage in group activities and discussions to relate course material to on-the-job situations.

Apply New Skills to Workplace Scenarios

At the conclusion of the program, Foundry College students complete a synthesis course in which they use the skills they’ve built to analyze challenges they’ve encountered in a current or past job. Each student explains how their Foundry coursework contributes to a better understanding of these situations, and creates a plan for handling similar scenarios in the future.
