IT Lab: Junior Summer Institute

Carnegie Mellon University’s H. John Heinz III College is pleased to announce the IT Lab Junior Summer Institute, a paid summer fellowship program ($1,000) for rising college seniors. This program is designed for U.S. citizens pursuing STEM-related undergraduate degrees such as computer science, engineering, math, physics, information technology, or business information systems.

Students in CMU’s IT Lab will interact with top CMU faculty on research projects in the following areas:

Along with their experiential learning activities, IT Lab Fellows will take two summer courses at CMU, one in empirical methods and one in innovation.

The pairing of our two schools, the School of Information Systems and Management and School of Public Policy and Management, offers a unique academic experience that allows us to examine how technology can can be used solve problems that arise in the public and private sectors of our economy. Heinz College prepares students with skills to conduct careful and objective analysis of relevant data, to understand and leverage the power of information technology, and to lead and implement change in managerial and policy contexts.
