Computer Science Internships

Computer Science students are strongly encouraged to pursue an internship or co-op experience before completing their degree. Examples of past internships and experiential learning opportunities included Fluid IT Group, Keystone College Information Technology Department, Lackawanna County Information Services, Prudential Investments, and Tobyhanna Army Depot.

“While at Keystone, I secured an internship at J. Walter Thompson, a worldwide marketing firm in New York City, and my exposure there led to a job offer in my field. My education at Keystone provided the real-world skills and hands-on experiences I needed to start my career. Every student should seek a hands-on learning experience before they finish their degree, and Keystone will help make that happen.”
