Promote Open Positions

We encourage employers to contact us with information about opportunities, positions and desired qualifications. We will gladly share them with to current students as well as our alumni network, and they will contact you directly if interested.

Employers may sponsor on-site visits for students to tour and learn more about their organization. The INI has campus locations in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Mountain View, California and Kobe, Japan.

The INI partners with corporate, industry and government sponsors for practicum projects and academic projects.

Bridging the gap between theory and practice, the practicum is a project-based course for INI's information networking, security and mobility students. Teams tackle problems, pilot new ideas and develop solutions for sponsors in computing, mobile systems and security.

Academic Project

Put the brightest minds at Carnegie Mellon to work for you. By sponsoring an academic project, individual or teams of INI students will work on a project in either the fall or spring semester. Projects are widely-defined in scope, and may include development, testing, user/market studies and/or research.
