Projects could involve electronics, hardware, and/or software, according to the intern’s interests and qualifications. The length of the internship is flexible, with a minimum of five months. We encourage students to consider a year-long internship. The full year gives interns a greater opportunity to experience the results of their efforts as their projects come to fruition, to achieve an advanced level of personal and professional development, as well as develop greater fluency in English and familiarity with American culture.
