CS/STAT Internship Course 403

COMP SCI/STAT 403 Internship Course in Computer Sciences and Data Science is primarily intended for undergraduate students who must enroll for credit as a part of their internship.  This is mostly international students who need CPT authorization, but some domestic students also have a requirement, from their internship organization, to be concurrently enrolled. Students must be declared in either Computer Sciences or Data Science majors and be in an internship that directly relates to the program to be eligible for the class.

This course is an online asynchronous class and uses Canvas for weekly discussions, journals, and a final project. The course is graded using an A-F scale. For class policies, grading scale, and a sample weekly schedule, you can view the most recent term’s syllabus here.  In the fall and spring semester the expectation is 3 hours of work per week outside of the internship hours.  In the summer 8-week term the expectation is 6 hours of work per week outside of the internship hours.

Enrollment is being taken for Fall 2021 internships at this time. If you are interested in taking the course, please complete the following:

  1. Complete this request form
  2. If you are an international student on an F-1 visa, you must also complete the CPT application through Terra Dotta and assign to Mollie Stolbov (stolbov@wisc.edu) if you are a Computer Sciences major or Sara Rodock (rodock@wisc.edu) for Data Science
    • Complete both steps at the same time, do not complete step one and then wait to complete step two
    • Please see the ISS website regarding CPT if you have questions regarding the requirements to qualify for CPT.

* Note, if you are in both the Computer Sciences and Data Science major you should contact the advisor for the program most related to your internship.

Requests are generally processed on Fridays. If your form is approved, you will receive a follow up email as well as notification of permission to enroll in COMP SCI/STAT 403.
