The internship program aims to provide students with practical experiences that enhance and complement classroom learning. Internships better prepare students for future careers by engagement in valuable experiences that put classroom theory into practice, as well as challenge students to develop professional skills and knowledge needed to ensure career prospects upon graduation within the Computer Science program.
Computer Science students in all degree programs are eligible to gain three credit hours to count towards their degree provided they satisfy the following requirements:
- GPA Requirements: 2.0 for undergraduate students and 3.0 for graduate students
- Enrollment Requirements: Student must be enrolled and fully admitted to UTEP
- Students must have completed at least one semester of coursework at UTEP.
- Undergraduate students must have completed CS 3331.
- Undergraduate students must register for CS 4173, CS 4273, or CS 4373.
- Graduate students must register for CS 5373.
An internship for credit is distinguished from employment. The general guidelines are as follows:
- The employer has an established internship program.
- The employer has advertised the position as part of the internship program.
- The employer has outlined the assignment and learning opportunities for the position.
- Acceptance into the internship program is a competitive process.
- The position does not exceed one semester.
Important: The intern should verify that the supervisor is willing to fill a student evaluation form at the end of the internship and return to the Undergraduate Program Director. The internship course grade will be based on the supervisor’s evaluation and a one page summary by the intern describing the internship.
