MSIT Internship description
Carnegie Mellon University in Rwanda’s Master of Science in Information Technology (MSIT) integrates technology, management, and industry experience to prepare students to become intelligent decision makers in the field of information technology.
Our graduate program requires students to participate in a three-month internship at a third party enterprise or organization. The internship allows them to apply their knowledge and experiences from the program’s courses and labs in a real-world work environment.
Value of the internship for organizations hosting the CMU-R students
The internship provides the hosting organization with the opportunity to interact with our students and leverage their expertise for the benefit of the organization.
It is also an opportunity to evaluate their skills for potential future employment; however, the student intern is not guaranteed a job upon completion of the internship.
Successful internships can also lead to further collaboration between the organization and CMU-R.
