The project proposal application period for 2020 summer internships is now open. Please see our list of Available Projects. Contact the project mentor for more information and to discuss your ideas. You may suggest a project idea of your own but it must leverage HPCC Systems in some way. Contact us for support from an HPCC Systems mentor with experience in your chosen project area.

Find out more about the HPCC Systems Summer Intern Program including how to apply and read this blog introducing the students and their projects.

10 students joined our intern program in 2019. Our students presented about their projects at our tech talk webcasts during the year and some were able to enter our 2019 Poster Contest held at our HPCC Systems Community Day Summit held in Atlanta, October 2019.
