Hands-on work experiences for graduate students

We offer summer learning experiences through our internship programs. The internship program is open to students anywhere in the country. 


Gateway Development Internships Close Up: Thomas Johnson III

Our Workforce Development team offers internships for students interested in developing their gateway development skills. The internships are intended to provide hands-on experience and to provide a unique opportunity for student engagement with the community. 


Summer Internships at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC)!

Eligible applicants include graduate students majoring in computer science or computer engineering (or related fields). The student will be funded by SGX3 to join the TACC science gateway team for the summer, working on live, impactful gateways. 

Students can use the internship experience to receive credit through their college or university if their institution has an independent study class or internship credit program. On the application form, students should indicate their intent to use the internship to satisfy requirements for university credits. The course/program number (if applicable) and description will be requested, and paperwork will need to be processed at the beginning and end of the internship.

The program will run from June 5 - August 4, 2023.

Experience at a Glance

The enriching and transformative experience at a world-class supercomputing center includes:

  • Opportunities to train in Software Engineering, Science Gateways, and High Performance Computing
  • Mentoring by researchers at The University of Texas at Austin
  • Social and team-building activities
  • Professional and leadership development opportunities
  • Technical report and publication opportunities


Participants will receive a $5,400 stipend, housing (+ meal card) at The University of Texas at Austin, and travel arranged by TACC. Additionally, travel grants to present research at an annual conference will be available to selected participants.
