A couple of key takeaways: 

  • These PAID full-time positions are located in southern Maryland at our 12,000 sq ft research hangar at St. Mary’s County Airport, just a few miles from Naval Air Station Patuxent River
  • Interns must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents due to ITAR equipment in use
  • Summer 2024 internship program will run from Wednesday, May 29, 2024 – early August, 2024
  • Positions may be continued part-time into the academic year at the student’s home institution
  • Project must fly (or try!) by the end of the summer; we are a flight operations center!
  • For students who do not live close enough to commute, the UROC will offer affordable local options. Details TBA.

Thanks for your help in finding the best candidates for our positions!
