The InternHub program at VTTI provides Virginia Tech students with the opportunity to collaborate with influential automakers on projects that seek to solve the industry’s most prominent transportation efforts. With the supervision of a VTTI faculty member, interns will have the ability to work on high-tech projects that align with their interests and career goals. Internships will typically span the traditional academic and summer semesters.
The program operates through the Automation Hub, located on the Virginia Smart Roads at VTTI’s main campus. The 15,000 sq. ft. facility owns tools equipped for mechanical and electrical system development. This program plays an integral role in helping Virginia Tech’s College of Engineering rank among the top ten engineering schools in the nation.
In combining academic instruction with hands-on experience, the InternHub program aims to assist students in becoming transportation professionals and create a pipeline of talent for the involved sponsors. Assets included for research resources include the Virginia Smart Roads, hardware and software development groups, research vehicles, an advanced computing center, and immeasurable naturalistic driving databases.
