Computer Networking (MS): Internship Concentration

Apply Now

Degree Requirements

This concentration will require an Internship of at least four months duration (maximum of seven months) and the student to take  3 credit hours of ECE 650 and obtain a Satisfactory grade. An internship of at least four calendar months duration would require that it span at least one semester and possibly part of summer. The credits for ECE 650 would be taken during the semester that includes the internship. The  student would be considered as being enrolled full time during that semester. 

A student would not enroll in this concentration in their first semester. They would switch to it in  a later semester if they secure a suitable internship. Per normal CPT rules, International  students studying on an F-1 visa would have to be present on a US campus for two full semesters (a full academic year), and present at NC State for one semester, before using CPT  privileges to take an internship. If a student switches to this concentration but does not start the  internship, they will switch back to the original plan. 

This will be a concentration only for on-campus students. Students enrolled in our distance  education – Engineering Online (EOL) - option will not be eligible.
