Course Title

Computer Science Micro-Internship (Spring 2021)

Collaboration Overview

The SUNY Potsdam Computer Science Department is searching for 1-5 Industry Partners to participate in Micro-Internships (less than 40 contact hours) with our CIS students for Spring 2021. Throughout the 12-week micro-internship projects, you'll interface with the students directly as they look to prototype, design, and/or build technology to add value to your product or business model. Previous examples of successful projects include building a data dashboard to showcase performance metrics for internal or external purposes, conducting user interviews and designing prototypes for new app features, and building prototype applications for the purposes of testing user experiences. If you're interested, please submit your micro-internship project idea below and we'll schedule time to discuss further!
