Abstract: This case illustrates and discusses the issues and challenges faced by ESI, Algiers when it established an IT-centric internship process. Increasing and diversifying internships requires the implementation of a transverse device involving a maximum of internal and external stakeholders, in order to ensure genuine profitability for future engineers who must adapt quickly and efficiently to the professional world. The case study describes an e-management approach that has the particularity of being based on human levers (maximum involvement of internal and external actors) coupled with technological opportunities (use and development of supporting software tools). The case study focuses on early stages (prospecting, validation, and monitoring).

Keywords: internship; IT-centric process; e-management; information system; knowledge; education.
