Internships & Opportunities

Internships not only help students gain “real world” experience, but also grant academic credit. Summer internships are also an opportunity to earn academic credit.

During the semester, a student will typically work 8 to 12 hours per week at a local company such as General Dynamics, Shields MRI, Staples or Intersystems. Most Computer Science majors choose to complete an internship during their junior or senior year.

In Their Own Words

Comments from a few Stonehill Computer Science interns:

“The internship and project have been a great learning experience for me. Not only did I learn how to work as a team member on a project, but I was actually one of the leaders.…I am very anxious to see the release of the project because I have worked on it from the planning stage and I am very proud of it.”
“One of the more exciting experiences I have had during my internship was the opportunity to write code for a cable modem diagnostic application called StormWatch. [My internship] provided me with valuable experience while at the same time giving me a chance to work with new technology.”
“My internship helped me to understand what I really want to do when I graduate — become a software engineer. I’d like to develop software that somehow helps people and makes a difference.”
“This internship was very important in terms of building my confidence as a software engineer. I feel that if I could do well at KoolConnect, with all of the various tools, environments and languages I needed to learn, I can do well anywhere. I also feel like I learned a little bit about the actual business world. The biggest thing I will take from the whole experience is an increased confidence in my skills as a programmer and increased confidence in my ability to work well on my own.”
