How can a student benefit most from an data analyst internship?

I am planning to apply for an internship in near future. My background is electrical and I did 2 classification projects based on ConvNet previously. The internship mentioned that they need a data analyst, with background on Machine learning and Artificial intelligent. The task involves investigating the emerging tools, frameworks, and methodologies to facilitate the envisioned analytics and machine learning processes.

What training and courses should I take before entering this internship?

  • I am grad level student, should I ask my professor about the job prerequisites and required courses?
