The following is a description of what is required to complete an internship in Computer Science for CS395.
CS395 is an internship in Computer Science. To enroll, it is your responsibility to first find a job that exercises professional work experience using computer science skills. Typically the job is a summer internship or a 6 month co-op, but it might also be a full time or a part time job. Enrollment will be permitted only after a description of the work and a plan for the completion of the project is submitted to and approved by the instructor. Work that is not related to computer science topics will not be approved! This generally includes jobs such as technician support for setting up or repairing PC's. If you are not sure if your job qualifies for the internship credit, talk to your instructor. Typical internship projects include the analysis, design, coding, testing, or documentation of a computer science project of moderate complexity under the supervision of a qualified professional who has agreed in advance to undertake the role. The project supervisor may be a supervisor at the internship location or an advisor at the university. If the project requires multiple semesters to complete, students should only enroll in this course during the semester the project is completed. A written report and oral presentation to the faculty is required upon completion. The final report should also include a letter of evaluation from the supervisor.
To recap, here is the process and deliverables:
