The Internship Program

The CST Department offers an internship program to help students build a bridge between education and real applications. It is a 3 credit course in the BTech degree in Computer Systems.

The objective of the internship is to give students the opportunity to:

  • interact with knowledgeable and experienced professionals,
  • gain hands-on experience in their chosen field,
  • discuss their professional plans with their internship supervisor, and
  • develop professional relationships.

Internship Sites

Students have successfully done their internships in large, medium, and small companies, i.e. Goldman Sachs, MTA, Versace, NYSE, and Union Settlement Houses, to name a few.

Many students have performed very well and upon graduation, have gained employment at their internship site. It is a valuable experience to jump-start a career.


To qualify, a student must meet the minimum requirements as stated in the catalog. The CST internship coordinator will work closely with students and businesses in establishing an internship relationship.

Students must complete a minimum of 120 internship hours within a semester. For those students who are currently working in the IT field, they may register for the team project course. However, students are required to get permission from the department.

The Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation in Science, Computer Science, Mathematics, Engineering & Technology

Our Goal

The NYC Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (NYC-LSAMP) is an alliance of 16 CUNY Colleges and the CUNY Graduate Center. The Alliance’s goal is to substantially increase the number of underrepresented minority students who pursue and graduate with Baccalaureate Degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). From its inception in November 1992, the Alliance has been at the forefront of a concerted effort to increase annual Minority STEM enrollment and graduation in the City University of New York.

Scholarship and Research Opportunities

LSAMP provides academic scholarship support to CUNY students majoring in the STEM disciplines, making research an integral part of STEM education in CUNY. In addition, the Alliance supports research training opportunities and academic support services for students to encourage greater participation in science, mathematics and engineering and to boost academic excellence. For the faculty and students in the community colleges, this support is made possible through various financial incentives, including competitive faculty grants.

Student Requirements:

  • Overall GPA of 3.0 or higher
  • Full-time Student
  • Major in Science/Applied Science discipline
  • Underrepresented minority: American Indian, Black, Filipino, Hawaiian, Latino, Native-Alaskan
  • US Citizen/Permanent Resident
