UTS Summer 2012 Internship PROJECT: Migrating CISER Server from SharePoint 2010 Foundation to SharePoint Enterprise 2010 hosted on the TTU Network.
Requirements: Intermediate skills in computer programming; focus on object-oriented languages and scripting languages
Scholars are paid hourly (currently $7.75 per hour) and can work a maximum average of 30 hours a week during the summer and 15 hours a week during the regular semesters. The program does not provide room and board during the summer or academic year. It does not pay tuition and fees. The award does not qualify a student for in-state tuition.
To be eligible for this program, students must be: 1) full-time undergraduate students in good academic standing; 2) interested in research with a technology focus; 3) either an American citizen or permanent resident, or, in the case of foreign nationals, hold a visa allowing her/him to work in this country; 4) committed to a long-term research experience, and be able and willing to maintain a serious and ongoing commitment to their research project during the academic year and summer. Other employment, high course loads, or substantial involvement in other activities or organizations are not compatible with the kind of effort that is expected of the undergraduate research students in this program. Students interested in short-term and less committed undergraduate research efforts should pursue one of the many programs that provide those opportunities.
