Internships are an integral part of the academic experience at the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences (CEAS).
All students pursuing a master's degree in information science must complete an internship as part of their program of study. Undergraduates pursuing a BS degree in Informatics are required to do experiential learning which includes internships.
Undergraduate and graduate students also have the opportunity to complete an internship as part of their coursework.
Rafael Flores ‘14, Support Engineer, Virtusa (B.S., Computer Science)
"I completed an internship at the New York State Office of Information Technology Services as a software tester in quality assurance. It was a great experience because it was a brand new field of technology I never knew existed. It also exposed me to a real life work experience in a professional environment. It helped me branch out to a similar career path with I really love and I'm doing today as support engineer."
