Internship and Research Opportunities
The Computer Science Department offers a variety of research and internship opportunities to our students. Whether its contributing to a professor's research effort or spending the summer at a company or laboratory, such experiences provide the opportunity for personal growth and professional development.

- Additional internship opportunities are listed in the Job Resource Center
- Dana Internship: The Dana program provides educationally relevant opportunities for highly qualified students with financial need. The Dana student work experience takes place during the academic year and/or over the summer. Students may work during the academic year with faculty on special projects or in the local community in not-for-profit organizations. A summer program may also include corporate settings outside the area. Our Computer Science majors have performed research in virtual reality, medical image processing and tactile feedback device development through the Dana program.
- Other Research Opportunities: Our faculty often participate in other research opportunities for our students as they become available. One example is the CRA-W funded CREU program, which funds students from underrepresented groups to work closely with a faculty member on a research project.
All of our majors participate in a senior project during their final year. "Senior Project" ensures that all of our students leave the department with experience working on team-oriented, experiential projects. Students work closely with a faculty member and one or two other students on a project that may be research or real-world oriented. Recent senior projects have included Lego robot engineering, wiki site visualization, serious game development, and using Macromedia Flash to Develop Computer Simulations.
