At MU ICS, we believe that internships are an excellent way for students to gain hands-on experience in the field of cybersecurity. They will be able to work with leading researchers and practitioners and be exposed to the latest technologies and methodologies. Through internships, students can apply the knowledge and skills they have learned in the classroom to real-world situations and develop a deeper understanding of the field.
Internship opportunities vary from semester to semester. Please check with the department Chair or Internship Coordinator before the end of the semester prior to the semester that the internship begins.
Some previous internship opportunities that our students have had the privilege of obtaining while in school were with:
- Magnet Forensics
- Spyder Forensics
- Marshall Health
- West Virginia Fusion Center
Marshall’s Career Education Internship’s page: Internships – Career Education (marshall.edu) has numerous available internships for students through Handshake. If a department-guided internship is not available, feel free to check out their page for information on external internships.
