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 Student Intern 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 Student Intern 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.
