IT Internship Program

C&IT offers undergraduate students the opportunity to gain firsthand IT experience as interns. Students work in different areas across C&IT, learning application development, network engineering, supercomputing and more.

Program outline

Interns are selected in the fall for the whole academic year — with the possibility of an extension into spring-summer. The program focuses on a different goal every year and leads students to a specialized assignment, while giving them a chance to learn about multiple IT specializations. Select participants will have the opportunity to apply for additional years. This is a paid internship.

Overview (year one)
Interns rotate through different areas of C&IT, working with two departments for 10 hours each per week (20 hours per week total), changing per semester.

Residency (year two and three)
Interns who are asked to return for a second year are assigned a main department, with the opportunity to assist in other departments a few hours per week.

How to apply

Applications for fall 2019 are now closed. Please check back in the winter 2020 semester for fall 2020 openings.
