Internship Program


Internship Program

Graduate students (primarily from the ISOM and CISE departments) are recruited each semester for various internship opportunities within our department.  The selected interns gain valuable work experience and learn new software, technical, and teamwork skills.  Many students register for and receive credit hours for their internship through their degree programs.  Prior interns have assisted with system documentation, business process diagrams, user guides, process automation, web development, testing, repository management, research and product evaluations, data modeling and data flow diagrams.

Interns who excel in their assignments and demonstrate professionalism and a strong work ethic are often hired into temporary paid positions and retained for one or more additional semesters — depending upon the needs of the department. Several of our current permanent staff initially joined our department as interns.
