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:
- You create a rèsumè based on your experience and skills.
If you need help, the Career Services is a great resource tool.
- Your professor will review your rèsumè, suggest any changes and
distribute your rèsumè to area businesses.
- Your professor will let you know when you've been accepted to a
company for an internship along with all the details.
- 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.
- During your internship, you are to create a weekly status report to send
to your professor as well as your supervisor.
- 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.
