2013 Summer Internships
  • New jobs have been posted on Coastal Carolina’s career services site for open IT Associate positions and summer internships at Duke Energy. The IT Associate program offers 3 to 4 rotations into different technical areas within the IT organization over a 3 year period. Our program director has taken notice to the CCU alumni that have been hired over the last few years. There is a good chance that we will be planning a recruiting trip sometime during 2013 or early 2014.

  • DePauw University is hosting a research experience for undergraduate students (REU) during the summer of 2013. This program is open to students at colleges and universities that do not have graduate programs in computer science. This year, we have projects on the design and evaluation of persuasive technologies, educational support for functional media programming, and parallel processing (further details can be found at the link below). The program runs from May 29 to August 2. Applications must be received by March 1 to receive priority consideration, and all applications must be received by March 15.

  • Paid Summer Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU). We've had several students in the past participate in these, not just at the one in Huston. I'd highly recommend these for two primary reasons:
    1. They are perfect for those interested in going to graduate school
    2. and even if you don't go to graduate school, they are good for the resume
