ANU Computing Internship program
Applications for Semester 2, 2021 placements will be accepted until 30 April.
The ANU invites organisations to host a computing student intern in Semester 2, 2021 (26 July-29 October).
The program is offered to ANU students located in Canberra, and other locations in Australia and overseas. We invite project submissions from organisations able to host on-site, remote or hybrid (combination of on-site and remote) internship placements. Given the uncertainty of the COVID-19 environment we ask that hosts participating in this program have the capacity to transition to remote-only delivery in the case that social distancing/work from home arrangements are mandated. To support a remote-only internship host organisations will need to be able to implement “working from home” arrangements where supervision and project management can be provided via online tools, such as Zoom or Teamwork, Slack, and other collaboration platforms.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact Penny Kyburz.

The ANU is committed to the academic and professional development of its students and ongoing engagement with government and industry.
One way we do this is by facilitating a range of valuable, real-world professional and practical student internship opportunities in partnership with local, interstate and international industry and government organisations.
The Computing Internship Program provides Masters, as well as penultimate and final year undergraduate students the opportunity to undertake an internship online in a business technology environment to apply technical skills and build professional skills. This work is an assessable part of the student’s degree.
Students participating in the Computing Internship Program are seeking an opportunity to work with industry and apply knowledge and skills learnt in their courses to solve real world challenges. This is valuable in providing work experience that helps with future job prospects.
