C&IT Internship Program

Applications for the 2022-2023 academic year are now closed. Please check again towards the end of the winter semester.

We're looking for go-getters, not the most experienced. C&IT interns have the curiosity and drive to learn and work alongside others who share their passion for technology.  

C&IT offers undergraduate students the opportunity to gain firsthand IT experience working a variety of assignments, including real projects and tasks, alongside experienced full-time IT employees. Students work with different supervisors across C&IT, learning application development, network engineering, supercomputing, and more. 

Applicants are hired for the academic year every fall. Interns are given different assignments each semester, giving them an opportunity to learn about multiple IT departments, and eventually leading to specialization. Spring/summer employment is possible but dependent upon demand. 

Applicants must be in good academic standing and qualify as either freshmen or sophomores.

  • Year 1: Interns are assigned to two departments each semester, working ten hours per week in each area (20 hrs/week).
  • Year 2-3: Interns who are accepted for the second year begin to explore a specialization, and will remain working in the same department if they return for a third year.

Select participants will have the opportunity to apply for additional years. This is a paid internship. For questions about the C&IT Internship Program, please contact the program Committee at citinterns@groups.wayne.edu. Follow @WayneStateCIT on Twitter for program updates.
