NAVAIR/NAWCAD is pleased to announce that, for the fourth year, they are offering students the opportunity to participate in the Supercomputing Internship Program aboard NAS Patuxent River.

The four and a half week internship program will enable students to assemble mini supercomputers, and to learn or advance their programming skills in C++, working toward the aim of parallel processing on the mini supercomputers. The program also offers team building activities, various tours of base facilities, and guest speakers. Interns will research a topic pertaining to computers and complete a case study paper. Upon completion of the internship, students will present a PowerPoint to brief their experiences during the internship to NAVAIR/NAWCAD leadership.

Student Interns pack their lunches daily and a refrigerator and microwave ovens are available for use. It is not necessary for Interns to already have base access. Student Interns will be processed for Visitor Badges and/or their drivers will be processed for driving them on station. Twenty students will be accepted. Applications should be submitted immediately because once the seats are full, the internship is closed.
