The objective of the internship program is to make internship opportunities a winning situation for all parties involved: the student, the employer and the academic institution. The student should expect an applicable educational experience that enhances their academic qualifications and better prepares them for life after graduation. The employer should expect the identification of a motivated and qualified intern that meets their hiring needs, with a prospect for full-time employment. The academic institution should expect that the internship experience meets a specified level of academic achievement and that both the student and the employer provide feedback and continued support that allows the institution to continue to increase academic standards and provide internship opportunities for additional students.

Depending on how well an internship meets the specific guidelines, students could qualify to receive internship credits to satisfy the requirement of one restricted CIS elective course.

This designation is determined by the tasks performed as specified by the employer, the appropriateness of the experience to the student’s academic major in Computer Information Systems, and the degree to which they meet the specified guidelines as determined by the department internship coordinator.  

Internship opportunities are available through regular job and internship fairs held on campus, through departmental contacts and through extracurricular activities.

My internship was with Frost Bank in San Antonio, where I analyzed key performance metrics to inform business leaders of their progress towards their business goals. I was able to develop and refine soft skills learned in business consulting and use ERP knowledge of business intelligence tools to aid my department to analyze large amounts of data quickly.

My internship is with Rush Enterprises, a company that owns the largest network of commercial vehicle dealerships in the U. S.  I work in the corporate information technology sector within the SAP department.  I help coordinate new testing changes in the SAP system between the offshore testing team and the onsite business analysts.  I also perform configuration changes for operations in the SAP system.
