Industry is being transformed by technology and especially automation. This impacts every student in every major. In this internship you will learn how to design and execute the type of automations that are transforming industry using an industry leading no-code automation tool.
Having these skills and experiences will propel you to the top of the pile for interviews and open the door to great careers you were previously unable to consider. Also, students with this experience are qualified to apply for positions within the Nichols College Center for Intelligent Process Automation. These paid positions build on your experiences further increasing your marketability.
This RAI includes (1) 90-minute meeting per week to be announced/scheduled a couple of weeks before classes start. The first 5-7 weeks will be focused on independent training. Some guidance will be provided at meetings, however, most training is in the form of independent exercises and videos.
In the last 7 weeks students focus on designing an automation for a real use case of their choosing or contributing in other ways, like performing research. These final projects can be performed independently or in teams.
Success in this course is only dependent on consistent effort and a willingness to find solutions when things don’t go your way (Technology can be finicky leading to unexpected and frustrating challenges.) Past programming experience in anything speeds up the learning curve significantly. Any student who refuses to quit, performs well.
