Mitre is inviting federal employees to take part in the nonprofit company’s systems engineering fellowship program that will offer participants the opportunity to gain a hands-on and technical experience through multiple government projects.
The one-year program centers on the design and sustainment of critical systems and ties in with the University of Virginia’s accelerated master“™s degree program in systems engineering, Mitre said.
Participants will undergo hands-on sessions at Mitre’s facility in McLean, Va., and attend classes at UVA’s campus in Charlottesville, earning a master’s degree in the process.
Corresponding government employers will provide full financial support for respective applicants and must agree that participants would temporarily work at Mitre for a year.
The program’s next entry will begin on May 13, with applications due on April 1.
