Internship Experience

An exclusive part of the COF-CS program is the integrated CS Co-op Internship with KSU’s very own Department of Information Services (IS). Each of you will train in a state-of-the-art 21st century workplace.  Your IS mentor will co-ordinate with your CS faculty advisor to ensure the eloquent integration or your academic learning. This experience will be electronically documented in your LinkedIn profile to carry the digital evidence earned.
