Internship & Senior Project

A culminating experience is an integral part of the curriculum in the ITEC program. Students are required to complete three credit hours through either an internship or a senior project related to the students’ academic and career goals. These experiences allow students to integrate skills and knowledge acquired throughout the ITEC program.

Internship (ITEC 419)

Internship opportunities help students build key competencies and explore career interests in a professional setting, all while enhancing personal growth. Students must satisfactorily complete a minimum of 169 hours of internship experience to qualify for three hours of credit, but with full time work, students can count additional hours as elective credit. The internship course is graded as pass/fail. There are no prerequisites for an internship; students can complete one or more internships anytime in their program.

Senior Project (ITEC 495)

The senior project (ITEC 495) is a culminating course that allows students to integrate skills and knowledge accumulated throughout the Information Technology program. Students, usually in small teams, will analyze, design, document, develop, implement, and assess an IT solution. A grade of C or better is required. Prerequisites: ITEC 312, ITEC 412 each with a grade of C or better. Restricted to Senior standing or consent of instructor.
