TechBridgeWorld is seeking talented and passionate CMU students to participate in this year’s new and improved iSTEP internship program. iSTEP (innovative Student Technology ExPerience) gives you the opportunity to apply your classroom training in a real-world setting. As an iSTEP intern, you will have the exciting and challenging task of working with partners in a developing community to research how technology can help address problems they face in their daily lives. This work is highly rewarding and can be a career- and even life-changing experience.
iSTEP 2013 will be in India!
We are looking to assemble an interdisciplinary team to work with our partner, the Mathru School for the Blind in Bangalore, on various tasks including technology design and development, needs assessment, field testing and dissemination. The overall goal of iSTEP 2013 is to explore technology solutions that can assist students with disabilities, particularly visual impairment. You will be working with innovative technology prototypes like the Braille Writing Tutor and with wonderful people like Ms. Muktha, who is the founder and director of the Mathru School. iSTEP is truly a unique opportunity to use your skills to make a difference in the lives of others.
What else you need to know about iSTEP 2013:
- iSTEP is a paid, 10-week summer research internship.
- iSTEP is open to ALL students! Undergraduate and graduate students, as well as students graduating in May 2013 are welcome to apply. ALL majors are accepted – we want a mix of skills in our intern team.
