Google Computer Science Summer Institute Extension Program

Hear more from faculty and students about the Google CSSIx Program

The Computer Science Summer Institute (CSSI) Extension program is a 3-week on-campus summer experience for first-year students studying computer science and related STEM fields. Like the Google CSSI Program run at Google sites, this program is designed for groups underrepresented in computing (i.e., women, underrepresented minorities in STEM, and first-generation or low-income college students).

The CSSI Extension Program includes:

  • Soft and technical skill development.
  • Group project work culminating in app creation.
  • Opportunities to interact with Google engineers.
  • A field trip to Google's LA office.

2020 CSSI Extension Program Dates

The next program runs from August 2 - August 21, 2020. 

Program participation is limited. Applications for the 2020 CSSI program will be available March 2020. For more information, contact Dr. Sandra Luca at
