The UDCC partners offer a number of intern opportunities including internships that will result in gaining a federal security clearance. The UDCC partners offer general rotating internships with our large partners and small project-based internships with our smaller partners. Several of our data center and corporate partners also offer out of state internships during the summer semesters. All internships are paid and are limited to student actively enrolled in the undergraduate certificate program.

The Utah Data Center Consortium (UDCC) Internship Program
The UDCC Internship Program is designed to provide the intern an opportunity to work in Utah's regional data centers for extended rotational periods with multiple data centers fostering an understanding of real world data center operation in multiple settings. The build of the program enables the intern a chance to work in data centers supporting missions ranging from asset colocation and marketplace hosting to government and even intelligence services and markets ranging from regional to international. The internship program also offers rotations with groups that support data center operation such as equipment manufacturers and consulting services.
Rotations: The intern rotations are 3, 6, 9, and 12 month rotations or defined project rotations and may include attainment of a security clearance and rotations in secure federal facilities. Summer rotations are expected to be full time at 40 hours per week and academic year rotations are expected to be part-time up to 20 hours per week.
All students demonstratively seeking the Data Center Engineering Certificate are eligible for the UDCC Internship program.
