Studying Off Campus

In addition to faculty-supervised research opportunities with NASA, the National Science Foundation, and more, our students have provided technical expertise to real-world projects such as:

  • The Famine Early Warning System for Eastern Africa
  • Drought monitoring systems for the continental United States
  • Fire sequences and re-growth comparisons between the Black Hills and northern Siberia
  • Investigations of the seasonal characteristics of global cover types

Many of our students also take advantage of Sioux Falls’s status as the region’s business hub through internships at local businesses and organizations, including Citibank, Sencore, Gateway, Lodgenet, Electric Pulp, and the U.S. Geological Survey’s EROS Data Center. Jobs and internship opportunities are listed in Augustana's career center website.

Various on-campus jobs are also available to computer science majors as tutors, networking specialists, computer laboratory assistants, and network administrators.

In addition, Augustana encourages students to explore numerous study-abroad opportunities, available during fall and spring semesters, interim, or summer of every year.
