Hume Center Summer Internship Program
The Virginia Tech Hume Center is pleased to announce the Summer Internship Program for summer 2023! The internship program will allow students to work with our researchers in either Blacksburg or Arlington, VA. Interns will perform novel research as a team member on existing projects with real-world stakeholders and use cases. They will receive individual mentorship from experienced, technical researchers while sharing a summer research experience with a diverse cohort of students. Their work will directly contribute to the national security and domestic prosperity of the nation.
We will be offering positions to 15-20 undergraduate or graduate students for a 10-week internship (May-July 2023). Interns will be paid hourly at a rate commensurate with location, experience, and academic level. Applications are now closed for summer 2023.
About our Research Divisions
Mission Systems Division
In the Mission Systems Division, we focus on taking advantage of the latest technological capabilities for airborne and spaceborne systems, including machine learning, decision theory, computational mechanics, space situational awareness, maritime remote sensing, and small satellite design and security/resiliency.
Intelligent Systems Division
The Intelligent Systems Division conducts research to address critical areas of national security in three technological thrusts: 1) data science, machine learning, artificial intelligence, 2) cybersecurity and complex systems engineering, and 3) test and evaluation (T&E) of complex systems.
Spectrum Dominance Division
The Spectrum Dominance Division performs state-of-the-art research and development into robust communication systems (including digital signal processing, antenna design, and FPGA development), the novel application of deep learning and reinforcement learning to these systems, investigation of cybersecurity attacks and defenses, simulation and design of integrated electromagnetic structures, as well as leveraging cutting-edge quantum computing technologies for solving traditional complex problems.
