Our aim is to provide interns with an opportunity to experience working in an international environment and enhance their educational experience through practical work assignments. On the other side interns provide the Centre access to the latest theoretical and technical knowledge. Internship at the Centre helps both sides to expand the understanding of cyber defence and widening the network of professionals.
Currently there are two internship opportunities:
Industrial Control Systems area - Profile
Cyberspace Operations Doctrine Development area - Profile
