A student may register their internship for their Capstone experience through the Department of Computer Science CS 1900 course. This course is designed to provide CS majors with real world work experience (through qualified outside companies). In addition to the work itself, which must be highly technical in nature and relevant to the CS degree, a CS internship also has an academic component consisting of regular meetings with a faculty sponsor, weekly meetings with all capstone students, and several papers and presentations.
