Now Accepting Applications
Open Mainframe Project is accepting eight student interns during the summer of 2017 to work in the Open Mainframe Project development community. Each intern will work closely with a mentor for the duration of his/her internship. For a list of suggested intern development projects, please see our Project Ideas Page. Internship development projects do not need to be limited to ideas on this wiki page. If you have a great idea for a development activity for Open Mainframe Project, you can submit the idea as part of your application and, if chosen, the Open Mainframe Project Internship Administrator will find a suitable mentor for you.
Each intern will work remotely from his/her location of choice. There is no physical work facility provided or required.
The Open Mainframe Project will also give the ability for each intern successfully completing the program to present their project at an industry conference. The Open Mainframe Project will provide a stipend for travel for each student. To help support the student for presenting, the project will provide professional resources and training to help build their presentation skills.
One of our 2016 interns, Matthew Franklin describes his participation: “My project was to work on porting and adding on to the Linux system monitoring tool called “htop”. It was a great experience to work with my mentor, Mr. Nathan Roberts on this project and I enjoyed it very much. The SHARE conference was also a one of a kind experience for me. It was very interesting to hear the various experts of the mainframe field talk about new developments in the platform. It was quite empowering for me to see someone my age take on a project so immense. The whole internship inspires me to keep working hard at these projects and to undertake more projects to further my skills.”
Internship Program is new for current students; and replaces the Student Temporary Employment Program (STEP) and the Student Career Experience Program (SCEP). The Internship Program is designed to provide students enrolled in a wide variety of educational institutions, including vocational and technical schools, high school, and undergraduate to graduate college and university levels, with opportunities to work in federal agencies; explore federal careers while still in school; while getting paid for the work performed. Students who successfully complete the program may be eligible for conversion to a permanent job in the federal civil service. For successful interns to be converted into the federal civil service they have to complete 640 hours on the job. Interns demonstrating exceptional performance or academic excellence can receive up to 320 credit hours under the program toward the 640-hour requirement. Interns cannot be converted to the Recent Graduates Program.

These opportunities are available for US citizen undergraduates in majors related to NASA, particularly for those who are underrepresented minorities.

The Cyber Security Center is still in the process of upgrading our network. Because of this, we have not made plans host any cyber security tools classes, capture the flags, or king of the hill competitions. The continuation of the upgrade of the Cyber Security Center is our next project, now that the team is done will the WRCCDC. The Cyber Security Club will also be hosting events over the summer and will notify our members when events have been planned.
The Toro Cyber Defense Team competed in the 2016 Western Regional Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition last month. The competition took place March 17th through the 20th, and was located at the Sheraton Fairplex in Pomona. The team fought long and hard, and we placed 6th. You can watch the recorded live stream of the competition on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aFdYOKTnPnk.
The WRCCDC is a lot of fun, and I’m disappointed that I won’t be able to compete again. If fact, all but one member of the team is graduating this May or next semester, and will be unable to compete again. We will be recruiting new members over the summer and next fall to build a new Toro Cyber Defense Team for the 2017 season. If you are interested in being apart of the team, send us an email and/or come into the Cyber Security Center (LIB 5717) to learn more.
The Cyber Security Club will be hosting an election on Friday, April 29th. This election will decide the President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary for the following year. I will be graduating this May and will no longer be your President. We are looking for talented and dedicated individuals to take leadership in our club. If you are interested in running for office, please send us an email to nominate someone for office. We will take nominations up to the time of the vote.
