Gateways 2016 introduced undergraduate Joel Gonzalez-Santiago to the work of nanoHUB, presented by Lynn Zentner of Purdue University, and led to an internship.

Summer work experiences for undergraduate and graduate students

Our Workforce Development team offers summer internships each year for students interested in developing their gateway development skills. Participants will be placed at one of the SGCI partner sites. Eligible applicants include graduate students at any level and undergraduates majoring in computer science or computer engineering (or related fields) who have completed their junior year and who demonstrate strong programming and software engineering skills. Participants will receive a stipend plus housing and transportation.

In addition, each term (Fall, Winter, and Spring/Summer), our Incubator offers two internship positions for master’s-level students concentrating in usability and user experience design. This internship is based at the University of Michigan School of Information but gives students the opportunity to conduct usability evaluations of gateway projects located anywhere in the US. These are generally posted in August (for Fall), November (for Winter), and February (for Spring/Summer).
