Computer Science students are encouraged to attend both fairs to begin networking and interviewing with potential employers. Additional info sessions and open-house opportunities exist throughout the year.

Qualified students may count an internship experience as a CS elective course during the summer between junior and senior year. The benefits of such experience include exposure to ideas which could help with career decisions, making contacts which may be useful sometime in the future, and valuable work experience. Local internship opportunities are posted to the College of Engineering jobs board. All internships must be approved by the Director of Undergraduate Studies prior to each semester.
