Jobs & Internships

General Internship Information

The Computer Science department encourages all students to participate in at least one internship experience during their academic career. Internships are a great way to prepare for the job market by gaining real world experience.

An internship will give you an edge in today’s competitive job market, by giving you experience with integrating into a business culture and communicating about software development projects. Summer internships are particularly strongly encouraged. The following is a guide to the Department Policy on student internships. Please contact the department internship coordinator (Professor Rob Smith) with further questions on internship policies, process, or requirements.
