Hiram College computer science and applied computer science majors are strongly encouraged to find summer internships in the field beginning the summer after their second year in the program (after Data Structures). If possible the should consider one summer in an industry internship, and one in research (e.g. NSF REU) to make an informed decision whether to go to graduate study or industry. Almost all of our students spend at least one summer in a paid internship; many of them are offered permanent employment in the organization where they were interns once they graduate.
