Internship Program

UCF's School of Computer Science, Information Technology Program is proud
to introduce an internship program for IT students. We are actively soliciting UCF
Information Technology students that are interested in participating. Additionally,
we are soliciting interested companies and organizations in the greater Orlando and
Central Florida area.

Intern n: an advanced student or graduate gaining supervised practical experience
 
- Webster's Dictionary

The premise

  • Internships are three-way partnerships between the educational institution, the student intern, and the organization where the intern takes on the challenge of a program of systematic experiential learning.
  • People who supervise internships at their professional work sites are busy people. They want to help their interns succeed, but they have limited time and resources to support their interns or to invest in becoming premier intern supervisors.

Internships are a Win-Win Proposition!

 Benefits to the Student and University

  • Student's educational experience is enriched. Internship projects provide
    exposure to problems and learning that can't be learned in the classroom
  • Students strengthen their resume and experience for future employment
  • The University is able to broaden the learning experience for IT students and
    extend its service to the community

Program Scope

  • Internships will be for course credit (generally unpaid)
  • Projects are planned to last one semester (about 16 weeks)
  • 10-15 hours per week

General Requirements

  • undergraduate Information Technology major through the School of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science
  • Junior/senior standing and completed the following courses:
    COP 3223, COP 3502, COP 3330, MAD 2104, and COP 3503
  • GPA of 3.0 or above

New project with The Washington Center!
The Washington Center (TWC) offers college and university students in all major fields substantive internships in fields of their choice, as well as academic coursework and related activities. Placements are tailored to students' interests and may be with the governmental, business, nonprofit, or international organizations. Students typically receive a full semester's or term's worth of credit from their home institutions – and gain invaluable real-world work experience that substantially strengthens their chances in the competition for jobs or graduate and professional school admission.
