Software Engineering Internship

In order to graduate with a Software Engineering degree, every senior must complete an internship.
It requires you work between 100 - 120 hours in a semester of your senior year at a local company or non-profit organization. The work will involve software maintenance or a software project.

The following is a basic guideline about the internship process:

  1. You create a rèsumè based on your experience and skills.
    If you need help, the Career Services is a great resource tool.

  2. Your professor will review your rèsumè, suggest any changes and
    distribute your rèsumè to area businesses.

  3. Your professor will let you know when you've been accepted to a
    company for an internship along with all the details.

  4. Once you have met with your supervisor about your internship, you
    will need to create a project plan or job description for your time there.

  5. During your internship, you are to create a weekly status report to send
    to your professor as well as your supervisor.

  6. At the end of your internship, you will create an Internship Report,
    a reflection about your internship.

In the past years, our students have completed software-related projects at Sprint, Entire Computer Solutions, We-Are-IT, Harvesters, and other well-known companies and organizations.

This internship is a great hands-on experience and will prepare seniors for the professional world.
