Introduction to Student Opportunities
There are numerous opportunities for our students to get practical, applied experiences using the knowledge they are learning in their classes.
- The department does not place students into these experiences but we do pass on notices of these opportunities (usually via the "csugrad" and "csgrad" email lists) for students to pursue.
- We do keep a healthy list of various opportunities including internships, work co-ops, and REUs (research experiences for undergraduates). Click here for this list.
- Dr. Mohebbi is director of the department's internship program. Contact him to learn about how to have your experience count for course credit. But you must make these arrangements prior to the work.
