Designed to enhance understanding of how mathematics, statistics, or computer science are actually used in practice. The objective is to provide the student with an academically-coordinated professional experience related to the studentís field of study.

Students must meet regularly with their faculty advisors. A final paper, which will be kept on file in the Department Office, and an oral presentation are required. Students must register for the internship concurrent with the experience. COSC/MATH 380 may be taken twice but used only once toward a degree in computer science/mathematics. Offered on a pass/fail basis only.
