Internships In computer Networking & Cybersecurity

Students have the opportunity once they've completed their first two years of networking courses to apply for part-time positions locally while they complete their undergraduate degree. During their summers, students get summer jobs in the field, regionally, back home and nationally to gain more experience. Classroom discussions become a richer experience because students are out in the field gaining their own knowledge and first-hand experience as well as the faculty.

This combined work experience with the academic background provided gives them an advantage when they graduate and start their careers.

Many of these part-time jobs and internships turn into employment possibilities post-graduation.

We want you to be well prepared for your first internship, externship, or other field work. After your first year of exploratory practical education, you'll be ready to work with your career advisor to take the next step. 

  • The Upside-Down Curriculum allows you to get extensive classroom learning and hands-on experience with industry professionals in your first year, which gives you the real-world skills and qualifications to begin taking an internship or externship as early as the summer before your sophomore year.

  • Champlain's Career Collaborative will help you develop your professional résumé and hone your interview skills. Early on in your studies, you'll be able to show employers what you know.

  • Your professors will become your reliable mentors, pointing out the strategic academic and co-curricular activities that will help you build your professional skill set and enhance your résumé.

Local and national employers turn to Champlain for college interns because they are better prepared to work in professional environments than the majority of their peers from other institutions. Many Champlain graduates receive full- and part-time job offers from the organizations where they first took their internships or externships.
