The Georgia Tech Manufacturing Institute (GTMI) was awarded $283,000 by the Georgia Department of Economic Development’s Workforce Division in April 2016 to expand a pilot technical college student internship program from two students in the past two years to 20 students over the next three years. In addition to being paid for their work, as they were in the pilot program, students will also receive elective credits toward their degree at their technical college. The expanded internship program also provides the opportunity for participation from students at several technical colleges within a short drive of Georgia Tech. Internships will last six months and students will be engaged in project work similar to what was performed by students in the pilot program. The key goals remain the same: we want students to develop advanced technical skills in manual and CNC machining, CAD, CAM, additive manufacturing and other manufacturing technologies, as well as 21st century skills, that are critical to ensuring that Georgia builds and retains the advanced manufacturing workforce of the future.

If you are a technical college student interested in becoming a GTMI intern, apply today. Applications are still being accepted for 2017-2018.
