Shiloh Williams, a junior at Grambling State University (GSU), is completing a virtual internship with Rock Central. The Detroit-based professional services company focuses on human resources, accounting, technology, and more.
Williams, of Houston, Texas, is earning a degree in computer science with a minor in mathematics at GSU. He is interning in Rock Central’s software engineering department this summer. The section focuses on such areas as programming and systems design, implementation, and administration.
“I started May 21, 2021 and will conclude August 17, 2021,” Williams said. “I hope to learn the process of engineering a product and pushing it out for public use. So far, I have been learning a lot and I have implemented a lot within the company., I am very excited to continue my development as a programmer.”
He said the skills and processes that he is learning are helping to prepare him for a career in computer science.
“When I graduate, I would like to switch between machine learning and software engineering,” Williams said. “During the internship, I’ve learned a lot such as how to use Git (version control system used to store code), three more languages to program in, and backend and UI (User Interface) development.”
