Summer Internships at Tinker Air Force Base

The 76th Software Engineering Group at Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma City is excited to announce that we are accepting applications for engineering and computer science internships for summer 2020. The 76 SWEG is the largest engineering organization on Tinker Air Force Base and is responsible for software design, development, integration, and sustainment of many of the Air Force’s Mission Critical Computer resources. Interns in this program will be exposed to a variety of different workloads and gain real-world work experience in a professional and technical environment.

Note that there are three different types of internship programs list below.

Applicants: Computer Science and Engineering undergraduates and graduates. Read through the information below to see which internships are available to you.

All interns must meet the following requirements:

  • Currently pursuing a degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science or Engineering Physics
  • Currently enrolled in an approved, full-time program pursuing a Baccalaureate Degree
  • Live near or are willing to move near Tinker AFB during the 3-month summer program
  • Ability to obtain and maintain a security clearance (Air Force will fund the clearance)
  • Possess U.S. Citizenship

SWEG Summer Internship

The SWEG Summer Internship provides an opportunity for current students to gain engineering experience during a 10-12 week summer program or opportunities may exist for part-time semester work, following summer internships, and/or conversion to full-time employment after graduation.

To apply: Complete the application, and upload your resume and transcript(s) at: 

PCIP (Premier College Internship Program)

In addition to completion of a 3-month internship experience, PCIP may qualify you for a future spot in the Palace Acquire Program (PAQ). Students in PAQ receive funding for the full-time pursuit of a technical Master’s degree while collecting a salary for full-time employment. More details of the PAQ program can be found here: palace-acquire.html

PCIP internship has the additional requirements: 

  • Completed at least 60 semester hours (must be a Junior) 
  • Possess a minimum GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 grading scale 

To apply: Complete the application, and upload your resume, transcript(s), and your degree plan (showing all classes you need to graduate) at:

NASA Spring 2020 Internship Position

Title: Improving the Efficiency and Parallel Scalability of a Scientific Code 

Type: Internship 

Center: Glenn Research Center 

Description: The development and flight of Electric Propulsion (EP) thrusters require high-fidelity physics-base numerical simulations. At NASA GRC, we use a multi-scale hybrid particle-fluid framework to perform large domain simulations, such as single/multiple thrusters in a ground vacuum facility and in a full-size spacecraft on orbit. The hybrid particle-fluid code used in this project is written in object-oriented C++ and has a parallel simulation capability using MPI. The student’s main goal is to improve simulation speed/efficiency of the code by optimizing both various algorithms in the code and the MPI network and thus parallel scalability (i.e., increasing number of processors resulting in faster computation time). In particular, the student will look at the current MPI parallelization, particle-merging and splitting algorithms, fluid model, and mixed DSMC (Direct Simulation Monte Carlo) and ray tracing algorithms to improve the computation speed for both in-space and vacuum chamber simulations. This project supports the core competency of In-Space Propulsion at NASA GRC. Keywords: parallel computing; MPI optimization; Object-oriented C++; Improve computation / simulation speed 

Computer/Software Skills: Student must have a solid foundation for writing efficient, safe C++ code. Student must be proficient with programming and computer science concepts (e.g. variable, control flow, functions, data structures, algorithms). The student should have knowledge of MPI (or OpenMP) and parallel computing. 

Other Skills: Understanding of basic engineering and physics concepts is necessary. Prior scientific computing experience is desired. Prior knowledge of electric propulsion, plasma, and DSMC are NOT required but could be helpful. Good communication and teamwork skills are required. The student should have the ability to learn new materials quickly. 

Academic Level(s): College Junior; College Senior; Master’s; Doctorate 

Major(s): Computer and Information Sciences – Computer Programming; Computer and Information Sciences – Computer Science; Computer and Information Sciences – Computer Systems Networking and Telecommunications; Engineering – Aerospace / Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering; Engineering – Computer; Engineering – Electrical / Electronics / Communications Engineering; Engineering – Mechanical; Engineering – Nuclear; Engineering – Physics; Mathematics – Applied; Mathematics – Mathematics and Statistics; Multi-disciplinary – Computational Science; Physical Science – Astronomy and Astrophysics; Physical Science – Atmospheric Sciences and Meteorology; Physical Science – Physics 

Mission directorate(s): Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate 

Deadline for application: November 5, 2019
