National Science Foundation REU Programs (Research Experiences for Undergraduates Programs):
Each summer, National Science Foundation (NSF) provides a variety of research opportunities for undergraduate students through its Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program. Typically a small group of ten or so undergraduates work in each program in the context of a specific research project supervised by the faculty and other researchers of the host institution. Students are granted stipends and assistance with housing and travel. Many Computer Science majors benefit greatly from the REU programs.

Computer Science Research Assistantship at Biola:
Advanced students in the computer science program have the opportunities to participate in the research projects of the faculty. Under the supervision of the faculty, these students serve as research assistants and study important recent developments in computer science, including topics in areas such as information security, computer vision, natural language processing, knowledge representation and automatic reasoning, machine learning, and combinatorial optimization.
Many Computer Science majors learn and benefit greatly from internship opportunities on campus and in the industry. (See this YouTube video about job interview.) See more information from Biola's Center for Career Development ) and companies such as
