Would you like to have our graduate students intern or complete their Capstone Projects at your organization?
Drexel University's College of Computing & Informatics (CCI) welcomes organizations to incorporate our excellent students into appropriate opportunities to help enhance their academic experience.
Please note: employers who are interested in participating in Drexel University's Cooperative Education Program or advertising full-time/part-time positions should contact the Steinbright Career Development Center. Please visit our Career Resources - Employers webpage to learn more.
Two types of student work opportunities are available. Internships can be paid or unpaid and are not supervised by Drexel faculty. Students do not receive academic credit for internships. Capstone projects are typically unpaid. Students complete them as part of their degree requirement, working under the supervision of a project supervisor in the sponsoring organization. A capstone course instructor also supervises the student and is responsible for all project grading and formal assessment.
The Capstone Project provides a closer connection to information work to ensure that library and information science students have practical work experience by the time they graduate and are prepared to enter the workforce at a professional level. For capstone projects, library and information science master’s students will work 10 hours per week for a minimum of eight weeks, either in person or on virtual projects. Students will receive course credit toward their degrees. Capstone relationships must be developed between the College and a point of contact at your organization.
Project dates should align with the University academic calendar: fall (September to December), winter (January to March), spring (April to June), or summer (July to August).
