Internship Program

Business people

UF and Santa Fe students enrolled in IT-related programs are recruited each semester for various internship opportunities within our department.  The selected interns gain valuable work experience and learn new software, technical, and teamwork skills.  Many students register for and receive credit hours for their internship through their degree programs.  Prior interns have assisted with system documentation, business process diagrams, user guides, process automation, web development, testing, repository management, research and product evaluations, data modelling and data flow diagrams.


Applicants must be enrolled in one of the following:

  • An IT-related graduate program at UF
  • An IT-related Bachelor program at UF or Santa Fe College (in the senior year)


Spring 2018 Internships

We are offering the following unpaid internship opportunities for the Spring 2018 semester – from January 11 through April 25, 2018. Selected interns will gain real-world experience as members of collaborative professional teams and learn a variety of IT skills while working 10-12 hours per week at UF.

PeopleSoft Analyst – COMPASS Project  (2 interns)

COMPASS is a multi-year initiative to replace the current student software applications, from admission and registration through graduation.  This is the highest priority IT initiative at UF.  The intern will join the COMPASS Graduate Functional Workgroup and learn how to configure PeopleSoft degree audits, queries, and batch processes, as well as assist with process documentation.  The intern must possess strong attention to detail and excellent analytical, communication, and organizational skills.  Some knowledge of PeopleSoft is preferred.                                                                                                               

Location:  Ayers Building (720 SW 2nd Ave)

Project Analyst

UFIT supports hundreds of software and hardware systems and applications that provide the UF Community with the tools they need to do business.  Until recently, some of those applications resided within UF’s mainframe computer system, which is now outdated.  The intern will join the Mainframe Decommission project team to complete the transitioning process and will learn mainframe technologies, such as CICS, TSO, and RACF.  Strong analytical and excellent communication skills are required.  Prior exposure to mainframe technologies is a plus.                                                                                                                                                         

Location:  UF East Campus

This position offers opportunities in all aspects of Software Testing, especially in an Agile development environment. Additional duties will include compatibility, accessibility, usability and performance testing of the new ONE.UF Student Portal on multiple mobile and desktop platforms. The intern will gain exposure and experience in several of the following tools: Oracle PeopleSoft, HP ALM/Quality Center, HP LoadRunner, Apache JMeter, CrossBrowserTesting, and Jira.
