The Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering believes real-world experience is a valuable part of any educational program. Internships provide an avenue for students to build that critical experience, and Luddy students can receive credit for selected, career-related work that involves professional activity representative of informatics.
Y399 Project in Professional Practice internship satisfies an advanced course requirement. A student will receive credit for designing, executing, and documenting a project assignment selected in consultation with his or her employer. Employment must involve a project for which the student has substantial independent involvement as well as close supervision by the employer and the project must be related to the degree.
Students are required to complete 180 hours of supervised work during their project internship to receive the advanced course credit for Y399 (3 credit hours only). Students may repeat Y399 during a different semester for another 3 credit hours (i.e., a maximum of 6 credit hours).
