Student Program

The summer internship program is a 10 week long program. Students from all around the United States apply to work with the COAR team on research and analytical products. The COAR team looks to empower these students with the knowledge needed to help with their educational and career goals. This is done through a series of summer requirements for the students to include: participation in twice weekly lectures on various cybersecurity topics, weekly project reviews, defining project scopes and workflows, presenting their work to non-technical personnel from around the laboratory, resume review, and mock interviews (upon request).
