Internship details

Exciting remote internships in Cyber Security, focused on the research, development and application of concepts for securing communications and control in the modern world of aerial, land and sea unmanned vehicles. Expect to develop your knowledge and skill sets in regard to cyber security concepts and emerging technologies.

This is a remote internship you can conduct from home.

The world of unmanned vehicles and drones is a field of rapid technological advancement, and remote Cyber Security interns get the rare opportunity to contribute to growing the capability of these technologies.

Remote Cyber Security interns are hosted via the International Hellenic University, which is part of an international research consortium, including academic and industrial bodies. The research being conducted continues to advance the capabilities of unmanned vehicles, specifically in improving the security of communications and control mechanisms. This is a hugely exciting opportunity for interns to learn from a range of industry leaders and to gain experience in a highly exclusive field.

As a virtual intern, you’ll help to investigate potential security weaknesses and collaborate on creative encryption techniques to mitigate and eliminate risks. You’ll develop hands-on computer engineering skills and app development expertise, working across a range of developments to understand the structure, nature and scope of cyber security projects. Interns also perform studies on different concepts and current practices and propose solutions for specific case studies.

You’ll be in direct contact with leading experts in drone technology, and collaborate regularly with your supervisor through email and online meetings. In these meetings, you’ll be able to deliver updates on your work, and receive feedback, guidance and further tasks.

This internship is conducted in English.
