Google announces that the 2017 Engineering Practicum internship program will now be open to university students currently in their second year, majoring, or intending to major in Computer Science or a related field. This program includes three main components: a software project, skills-based training and professional development.
As an Engineering Practicum Intern, you will work on a specific project critical to Google’s needs with opportunities to switch teams and projects as you and our fast-paced business grow and evolve. We need our engineers to be versatile, display leadership qualities and be enthusiastic to tackle new problems across the full-stack as we continue to push technology forward.
Google aspires to be an organization that reflects the globally diverse audience that our search engine and tools serve. We believe that in addition to hiring the best talent, a diversity of perspectives, ideas and cultures leads to the creation of better products and services. Google is invested in increasing the pipeline of future computer scientists and software developers, particularly those who are historically underrepresented in the field. Many aspiring computer scientists could benefit from a program that bridges the gap between academic study and a professional internship. We want to inspire these students to continue in the field with this program.
