Internships

The faculty encourages every student to pursue internship opportunities. Internships give students practical work experience to supplement their formal, academic preparation.  The interaction with professionals in the industry is extremely valuable.  It has been our experience that every student who secured an internship was eventually offered full-time employment by their industry partner.

In the past, Southwestern students have participated in internships for the following companies:

  • CDF Associates, Weatherford, OK
  • Federal Aviation Administration, Oklahoma City, OK
  • Freightliner Specialty Vehicles, Clinton, OK
  • Hertz Data Center, Oklahoma City, OK
  • I-Structure, Broomfield, CO
  • JC Penny, Plano TX
  • Pioneer Telephone, Kingfisher, OK
  • State Farm Insurance, Bloomington, IL
  • WalMart Information Systems Division, Bentonville, AK
