Internships or independent study

Our Creativity Requirement ensures you get practical experience while making progress on your degree. Complete an unpaid internship or multiple paid internships locally or on the coasts while earning course credit and making connections with potential employers. Or partner with our faculty members on research and get credit for independent study. Either way, you will build your skills—and your resume.

International students

Approximately 80 percent of our graduate students in computer science are from outside the United States. Many of our faculty are, too. In addition, thousands of international students come to IU for other programs of study. The university, our department, and the Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering offer many types of support for you and a global community that we hope you will join.
