Here are just a few examples of roles our computer science interns have taken on before:

  1. Software Tester

    Software Testers are responsible for quality checking software during its development stage. Different programs require knowledge of different computer programming languages. As an intern, you will develop your programming skills while running the software and reporting any bugs to the Development Team Lead.

  2. Web Developer

    Web development is one of the fastest growing industries in the world. In fact, the demand for Web Developers is set to increase by 13% over the next ten years. Interns gain experience writing and testing code in multiple languages (e.g., JavaScript, HTML, etc.), building and scaling websites, and creating a seamless user experience (UX). These skills will make you stand out when applying for full-time professional roles.

  3. Systems Analyst

    Analytical thinking and effective problem solving skills are key to a successful career in the field of computer science. Systems analyst interns are frequently asked to gather user feedback on programs and forward it onto the team leader. You may also be given the opportunity to share your own ideas on how you think you could improve the UX. 

  4. AI Engineer

    Artificial Intelligence makes up part of the world’s fastest growing industry. Currently, it is worth just under $100bn, but that figure is expected to reach almost $1000bn by 2028. Securing an AI Engineer internship is a great way to get a piece of the action. Previous interns in this field have carried out in-depth research into new trends, contributed to program development forums, and learned how to implement AI agents and Machine Learning prototypes.

The industry

If you have strong maths, computer, and problem solving skills, plus you work in a highly systematic and organized way, it’s worth you considering a career in computer science. Analytical ability, plus a love of data, will really help you succeed in this field.
