Global Internship Program with IBM & Notre Dame


PUBLISHED: May 13, 2015

IBM LogoIBM and Notre Dame have come together on an exciting new Global Internship Program. Launched in summer 2010, the program affords a remarkable opportunity for five undergraduates and two graduate students from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering to work with IBM researchers on the ground in Beijing, China. Professor X. Sharon Hu served as the faculty adviser on the trip to Beijing to meet Notre Dame students and oversee the research project development. Currently, students are living in Beijing and commuting to the IBM Global Research Center, one of eight such IBM centers worldwide, and collaborating alongside IBM researchers on problems related to global IT infrastructure.
