Just a few places our graduates go:
Our department hosts several career-oriented events throughout the year to help students make connections with representatives from these companies and many others. Many organizations regularly visit our department and set up booths at career fairs or outside our Student Resource Center, and some even invite our students on special tours of their own facilities.
Students can also search for career opportunities through the university's own job search site, Handshake. Handshake is the place for university students to search and apply for internships, co-ops, part-time and full-time jobs. It can also be used by employers to post opportunities and share upcoming career events.
And don't forget: Not all of our graduates go on to work for companies. Many of them have also had very successful careers in computer science teaching and research fields. Check out the research opportunities available within our department.
Internships for Credit
Our department also offers students the opportunity to receive course credit for internships. Enrolling for an internship is different from enrolling for a regular course, so be sure to discuss this option with an academic advisor.
Review the the CSCE 491: Internship in Computing Practice course syllabus to learn more about requirements before enrolling.
