Top students in the CIS program are highly encouraged to participate in an honors internship program to gain on-the-job experience before graduation. All CIS students are strongly encouraged to complete at least one internship during their course of study. Locally, CIS students intern at such companies as Staples and Sun Microsystems. Still other CIS students have completed internships at Citibank in New York City and at Fidelity in Dublin, Ireland. In addition, students may participate in independent studies, working with faculty members who share their areas of interest.
