Summer Internship Course (CS298P)

The Internship Course (CS298P) is designed as a companion learning course for MCS students engaged in an internship experience. The goal of the course is to help students enrich their career learning through facilitated planning, analysis and reflection on their work experience and to apply what they are learning in the classroom in a real world business setting.

Throughout the internship experience, students are expected to complete the following assignments, forms and evaluations in order to receive “Satisfactory” marks in their CS298P courses. Employers are encouraged to complete the following form and evaluations to support the student’s professional growth and career development as they will soon be tech professionals entering the industry.
