Gain valuable experience by working with W&M IT

Students can benefit from a variety of learning opportunities when they work as interns in the IT department at William & Mary. Higher education IT departments are often leaders in technology innovation, allowing students to participate in cutting-edge projects and initiatives where they can learn from skilled professionals and mentors who can support them and give them feedback on their work. Interns can contribute to real-world projects and issues that directly affect the educational purpose and vision of the institution. This can help students acquire a broad range of skills and knowledge that are relevant to other industries since IT activities at a university are like those of IT work in any industry.

"Without W&M IT, my graduate program, and experience working with ITPIR (now known as the Global Research Institute), I would not be at my current position at Microsoft. Without these experiences, I may have landed at a less technical job doing work I am not as passionate about."
