School is out for the summer, and that means a new crop of interns has entered the building. Students from over 40 schools including Penn State, Stanford, Notre Dame, USC, UCLA, Albany State, UC Berkley, University of Texas, Tufts, Ohio Stage, Virginia Tech, UNC, Michigan State, University of Paris, Brandeis and USMA West Point have been accepted for a chance to take part in various internships at University of Southern California’s Institute for Creative Technologies.

Over the course of four weeks between May and June, 80 interns arrive eager to learn and bond with those who share the same passion for artificial intelligence, augmented reality, modeling, simulation, virtual reality, analytics, 3D visualization, biomechanics, robotics, and dialogue.

“So far it has been a great experience,” said Sai Sree Kamineni, USC Institute for Creative Technologies intern and University of Southern California student. “The project I am in demands me to learn new things that I haven’t tried before, and the work culture here is unique which allows us to research, experiment and be more creative.”

This summer, interns will spend 10 to 12 weeks with varying hours doing research for their field of interest. Students will gain experience with educational hands-on opportunities allowing them to work side-by-side with computer scientists, engineers, psychologists, and more.

USC’s Institute for Creative Technologies aims to create compelling immersive systems for effective learning for military, entertainment and educational purposes. Internships are supported, in part, by the Army Research Laboratory and offer creative and technical students the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in simulation, interactive media and virtual reality fields.
