Computer Science Technology: Internships and Careers


Cal U has identified internships as a major component of your education. An internship is a formal, for-credit arrangement designed to provide opportunities for you to study and experience professional career interests outside the classroom but under the supervision of the University. During this experience, you'll assume a responsible role in an organization and actively reflect on what you are observing and learning. Work experience in the computer science technology field is available through several internships and co-ops. For example, you can work as a summer intern with U.S. Steel or work on applications development as a classroom project for an organization such as the Senator John Heinz History Center. Learn more about our internship program.


A degree in computer science technology is the foundation for many different computing careers. Computer scientists do varied work. They design and build software and create efficient solutions to real-world problems in fields such as robotics, computer-enhanced vision and digital forensics. Individual computer science programs allow students to specialize in one or more of these fields.

Cal U prepares you to enter the workforce with knowledge, integrity, character and experience. With the help of Career Services, we'll connect you to potential employers through networking events, job shadowing opportunities, on-campus recruiting, job and internship fairs, and organizational visits.
