Subject Description
The core of the internship program is a six to eight weeks period of work placement spent in supervised work in environment-related work during the summer. The summer internship is not compulsory and when carried out as per the regulation of the College of Informatics and Computer Science can be counted as one of the elective courses only, so it cannot substitute for any required course. While the precise nature of internship will vary considerably, students will normally gain experience in some of the following areas: Software/hardware analysis, design, development and testing; The use and application of Software/Hardware tools in the design, development and implementation of problem solutions; Database design and development; Database implementation and maintenance; Installation and testing of hardware/software systems; Systems maintenance; Customer support; Software support for research projects; Software/Hardware evaluation and re-engineering. The internship requires a good deal of planning and arrangements from both the student side and the University side and have to be made in advance for it to serve its purpose. Students interested in the internship program must i) secure an internship position, and ii) approach the college before the beginning of the summer semester and submit an internship proposal. The university will do its best through the career advisor office and the College to secure internship positions every summer but it does not guarantee a placement for students. The internships available through the university will be distributed on a merit base and with consultation with external partners.
