We expanded our internship program beginning in 2013, enabling us to utilize additional talent to complete projects that would not otherwise be accomplished.

Our interns assist with real world, meaningful, project-based work with defined objectives. A goal of the program is to create a pool of developed candidates for consideration upon graduation, and several former interns have been hired as regular employees.

Internships are paid positions and students work an average of 15-20 hours per week. Hours are daytime, between 7am and 4:30pm, Monday through Friday. Internships vary in length with most of our students working during the school year as well as in summer. Supervisors, together with interns, establish schedules that coordinate with classes and exams.

We have adopted a modified business casual dress code where jeans are acceptable attire. Our office space is really cool and features floor-to-ceiling windows, large skylights, exposed steel beams and original Cream City brick.
