Engineering Practicum (EP) is a 12-week internship for first and second-year undergraduate students with a passion for computer science. The program provides developmental opportunities to students from groups historically underrepresented in tech through technical training and professional development. Students from all schools, and students who identify with a group that is historically underrepresented in the technology industry, including but not limited to women, Black, Latinx, Hispanic, Native American, students with disabilities, and Veterans are encouraged to apply.
Our unique internship offers the opportunity to work on a software project alongside other EP interns and full-time Googlers, and provides the chance to bridge the gap between academic understanding and practical professional experience.
