Cyber Systems

During their 1/c (senior) summer, many Cyber Systems (CySys) majors will pursue internship opportunities to further develop their computing expertise. Interns work closely with academic and professional mentors on real-world projects, applying skills and knowledge they’ve learned in the classroom and laboratory. Many of the internships lead to further involvement during the academic year either as a directed study or capstone project and feature Coast Guard locations that graduates may serve at during their Coast Guard careers.
