Since launching this initiative in 2007, we have hosted around 100 students at our Laboratories for three to six-month internships. The experiences on both sides have been very positive. The winners gain insights into real industry challenges and get hands-on experience that should be valuable to their university and faculty. They bring back knowledge of IBM’s advanced technologies as well as contacts throughout IBM Research.
