Internships allow our students to use the skills acquired during their classes in executing project goals
Approved students who are in good standing in their degree program may earn academic credit for internships. To receive academic credit for an internship, follow the procedure described below.
It is up to each individual student to secure their own internship, but UB has some great resources to help you with your search.
IAD has a list of past companies students have interned with that enrolled students have access to. Students are also encouraged to write to companies that interest you and ask if they have positions available - include your resume and let them know what problems you can help solve for them through your specific skillset.
Students in the Engineering Science MS (Data Science) and MPS Data Science and Applications programs are required to complete a project, either in industry or on campus, to satisfy their Master's Project course requirement.
Students cannot enroll in the Master's Project course until they've completed two semesters of full-time study in the respective degree program.
Students in the CDSE PHD can complete an internship as elective credit towards their degree requirements by enrolling in CDA 601 Individual Problems with their major advisor. Students must have satisfied all of their core course requirements and passed their qualifying exam before they can complete an internship. The industry experience should supplement their research.
