TechLEAP/WebLEAP. TechLEAP/WebLEAP is a national award winning computer certificate retraining program for students with existing college degrees. Students complete a “total immersion” course sequence in modern programming languages or web applications programs. TechLEAP arranges full-time internships with area employers at or near the end of the student’s classroom training.

TechLEAP's retraining programs for college graduates covers in six months what many programs cover in 18 months. The ability to absorb college-level material at a rapid pace is an admission requirement. TechLEAP students generally have at least a Bachelor’s degree, and must take an aptitude test in the computer sciences prior to admission. Many recent students have had engineering, biology or mathematics degrees, some have Masters degrees, and a number have significant prior programming experience.

Computer Applications/Computer Science Internship Program (CA/CS 269). The CA/CS Department undergraduate internship program provides your company or agency with student interns in computer programming, database design, web design, and help desk/network installation/troubleshooting. Students must have at least 4 courses (12 credit hours) in departmental credit courses. Most students have more than 4 courses; some have existing college degrees, and many are retraining through MC’s credit division.

This CA/CS 269 program has a successful internship arrangement with the Library of Congress’ IT department. In the past three years the Library has hired at least seven (7) interns during or after their internships. This attests to the students’ high quality training and “on-the-job” performance.

CA/CS 269 is part of the CA and CS Department curriculum, which permits both U.S. citizens and those on U.S. foreign student visas to obtain on-the-job experience through an accredited college internship program.
