MSTS Student Programs

Our student program offers paid internships (40-hour weeks from May/June to August) each year. We also offer some internships outside of the summner program. All internships are designed to engage you in hands-on, meaningful, paid work while applying classroom theories to live work conditions in support of the NNSS mission. The work environment, together with the MSTS Student Program experience, will give you a better view of what a future career might look like in both technical and professional fields. It can also help you widen your career path options while shaping the future of MSTS and the NNSS. If you want to be part of a program that supports national security, while working to advance your career, join us at MSTS.
