About the STEP Program:
The main aim of the Student Training in Engineering Program (STEP) is to bridge the gap between academic studies and a professional internship. STEP (Student Training in Engineering Program) is a 10-12 week internship for first and second-year undergraduate students with a passion for computer science.
It offers the opportunity to work on a software project alongside other STEP interns, with the support of full-time Googlers and a mentor. The internship program focuses on providing development opportunities to students from historically underrepresented groups in tech through technical training and professional development.
- The applicant must be in their first or second year of a full-time Bachelor’s in Computer Science or a related technical field.
- The applicant must have programming experience in Java, C++, or Python.
- Indian students can also apply for this internship and choose their preferred working location between Bangalore and Hyderabad.
- Currently enrolled in a full time degree program and returning to the program after the completion of the internship
