Computer Science Experiential Learning
At Anderson University, Computer Science students are encouraged to pursue hands-on experiential learning starting as freshmen.
Students have the opportunity to work for the Computer Science department, the University's Information Technology Services department, and our on-campus Genesys Internship center. Close partnerships with many area businesses also provide students with ample internship opportunities off campus, both during the school year and in the summer.
Computer Science Department
Paid work experiences are available within the Computer Science department as early as a student's first semester. Opportunities include maintaining the computers in the three computer science labs, supporting the CS departmental network, administering the servers in the Ascension Data Center (opening Fall 2017), as well as serving as web designers and classroom lab assistants.
Information Technology Services (ITS)
Computer Science students also have the opportunity to work with the Anderson University ITS. Past on-campus positions have included university-wide classroom technical support, database programming, network administration, and instructional resources support.
Anderson University is one of two locations where Genesys (formerly Interactive Intelligence) maintains an on-campus internship center, staffed with full-time Genesys employees. Computer Science students have the opportunity to gain real-world industry experience -- between classes! The Genesys interns receive close mentoring and professional development opportunities, competitive pay, flexible scheduling, and the chance to network with the leaders of the Indianapolis technology scene.
