I had 3 years under my belt before my internship. I had another friend who actually started working there in the summer during high school, and all he did was code in C. He eventually got his masters from Columbia I think and works as an embedded systems programmer, even though his degree was Electrical and Computer Engineering too.

Anyway, have a look at internships and what they require and what they offer. Often internships also teach you shit. I learned a LOT doing just that one summer. Everyone there loved shooting the shit with me and giving me tips and showing me how they do things "in the real world."

I did a quick search: www.internmatch.com/s/computer-science-internships/tampa-fl

If you're only in your first year it might be difficult as you're probably only doing math, physics and intro courses. My advice is to wait until after your second or third year. But hey, it doesn't hurt to try. Although you might have to try for a while until you get one.

do you mean like RISC and TTL and ICs and PCB shit / electrical engineering? I got my degree in Electrical and Computer engineering, so we learned everything from transmission lines to optical electronics lasers and shit and even built our own 8086-based computer on a fucking breadboard.

Anyway, do NOT go out and get some faggy certification. All they'll teach you is how to wire up servers and telephones at office buildings and how to set up and use a Microsoft server or whatever to control all the computers in the network. Those jobs suck ass (you're on call 24/7 and have to deal with stupid people not knowing how to use their computer or people calling you to type in the admin password so they can install Firefox). Where in the world do you live? Try looking for an internship or something. I studied in Massachusetts, USA, and got a summer internship/job at American Power Conversion where I got do take on a small project with another student and also did some design work (mostly just swapped out components with their RoHS-compliant variants).

TLDR don't do any Sysco/MSFT/A+ certification - it gets you a job but a real low position.

I live in valrico florida. But going into your internship, how much experience did you have? so far I've only learned how to code(including all the basic pc components and logic stuff). I'm looking for something entry level

well... if you're an engineering student then forget A+ certification. Those kinds of jobs usually are low-paid, high-demand server-room shit or "IT Crowd"-like computer guy or whatever. Just finish your engineering degree and your first job will be some well-paid, cushy desk job where you actually use all your training.

What kind of engineering are you studying?
