A Summer Internship for Hard Security Problems
May 30 – August 4, 2023
Over the 10-week period, RISC interns (RISCers) conducted research and participate in lectures and regular team development meetings in a shared virtual work environment. Undergraduate and graduate students were introduced to career opportunities with the DoD and IC while developing their technical capabilities through hands-on real-world project topics posed by government operators and supported with realistic data sets and other materials. The summer program concluded with a classified capstone, research showcase, and discussion led by senior current and former DOD/IC personnel to discuss the results.
The program is structured to facilitate interactions within teams, between teams, and with government sponsor representatives. Interns attended weekly seminars and regular team development meetings in a shared virtual work environment.
