High Performance Computing Summer Internships

High Performance Computing Summer Internships

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) High Performance Computing for Manufacturing (HPC4Mfg) Internship Program offers 10-week, hands-on, practical internships at DOE national laboratories.

For half a century, America has led the world in high performance computing (HPC) thanks to sustained federal government investments in research and development and regular deployment of new systems. The strong synergy between hardware development and software and application development has been a defining strength of the U.S. approach. HPC4Mfg unites world-class computing resources and the expertise of national laboratories to deliver solutions that could revolutionize manufacturing.

The HPC4Mfg program is part of the High Performance Computing for Energy Innovation (HPC4EI) initiative which partners public and private sectors to facilitate the use of advanced computational techniques in the private sector with the aim of reducing national energy consumption. In the HPC4Mfg Internship Program, student projects typically involve performing advanced simulation and modeling in topic areas such as materials, computational fluid dynamics, combustion and machine learning applied to scientific computational results. More information about the HPC4Mfg program can be found at This program is sponsored by the Advanced Materials and Manufacturing Technologies Office (AMMTO) within the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE).

As a participant in the EERE HPC4Mfg Internship Program, you will perform research-level computational activities under the guidance of a mentor who is a technical staff scientist or engineer at a federal national laboratory. You will gain a competitive edge as you apply your education, talent, and skills to research and development projects focused on HPC. You will also be able to establish connections with DOE scientists and subject matter experts that promote long-term relationships between yourself, researchers, and DOE.

2024 EERE AMMTO Summer Internships are postponed until further notice.
