Friends of Computer Science

Check out the companies that currently partner with the department through Friends of Computer Science (FoCS). These companies invest in students and department endeavors, offer great careers and internships, and provide an insider's perspective of their company.


Internships give students a chance to put their UTCS educations to the test in real world situations, sometimes created just for them. Many students take advantage of these opportunities to make valuable industry connections, earn enough money to pay their tuition and pick up in-demand job training that isn't available through college courses. You can do an internship in the summer or during the fall or spring semester.

Natural Sciences Career Services is the place to start looking for an internship.

Assisting with a course provides students with hourly pay, and the opportunity to really learn CS course material outside the typical classroom experience. UGCAs get paid to share their knowledge with other students.
