Google Student Training in Engineering Program (STEP) 2023

For first and second-year undergraduate students who are passionate about computer science, STEP (Student Training in Engineering Program), formerly known as Engineering Practicum, is a 12-week internship.

The internship program has put a strong emphasis on giving students from historically underrepresented groups in technology chances for professional and technical growth. Our special internship gives you the possibility to bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and real-world professional experience by working on a software project with other STEP interns and full-time Google employees.

There are two program date options (which must be available for the entirety of the program):

May 22, 2023 – August 11, 2023

June 19, 2023 – September 8, 2023.
