NAVFAC EXWC STEM INTERNSHIPS
UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA SANTA BARBARA (UCSB) PIPELINES PROGRAM
The Problem-based Initiatives for Powerful Engagement and Learning In Naval Engineering and Science (PIPELINES) program is an exciting opportunity for science and engineering undergraduates to participate in an 8-week immersive experience, where teams of students compete in finding the most innovative and effective design solutions to real-world Naval engineering and science design projects. All teams are matched with a Navy and a graduate student mentor, who provide training and support. Interns attend weekly meetings, special seminars, and sharpen their problem-solving and entrepreneurial skills through a course on Applied Creativity and Innovation.

NAVFAC EXWC WORKFORCE INITIATIVES
NAVFAC SEMI-ANNUAL GRADUATE SCHOOL PROJECT LIST
CEC Officer graduate thesis topics will be intentionally aligned with NAVFAC and/or NAVY strategy. In support of the National Defense Strategy, and in alignment with the goals of the Secretary of the Navy and the Chief Naval Officer, NAVFAC will provide relevant and unique advanced education and research topics. Graduate student theses and project topics for CEC officers, including current and prospective Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) students, shall be selected from the approved NAVFAC topic list.
NAVY WORKFORCE INITIATIVES
Office of Naval Research (ONR) Global science advisors are civilian scientists, engineers and technologists selected to participate in a one to three year career development tour. Selected through a nationwide competition sponsored by the Naval Research Enterprise, these professionals report to Joint, Navy and Marine Corps commands worldwide and remain focused on programs relating to all aspects of naval warfare.
The Office of Naval Research (ONR) Global International Science Program employs technically skilled scientists and engineers to enhance the international science and technology (S&T) engagement of the Navy and to increase the Navy´s awareness of global technology. The technical staff, known as science directors—typically scientists with doctorates working across government, academia and industry—work out of offices around the world to scout technologies for ONR and the Naval Research Enterprise (NRE).
The Summer Faculty Research Program provides an opportunity for faculty to participate in research at a DoN Laboratory or warfare center from May through August of each year. Eligible faculty must be U.S. citizens who hold teaching or research appointments at any U.S. college or university to include Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Minority Serving Institutions (HBCU/MSI).
DOD/DON STEM INTERNSHIPS
Department of Defense and Department of Navy STEM internships allow high school and college students the opportunity to engage in hands-on research, solving real-world problems at DoD Laboratories and Facilities.
DOD COLLEGE ACQUISTION INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
The DoD College Acquisition Internship Program is a paid, 10-week summer internship that provides students with real-world exposure to Department of Defense acquisition workforce career opportunities. The program targets full-time second and third year students currently enrolled in an undergraduate program at an accredited college or university. Interns receive hands-on, practical experience in analysis, research, report writing, oral briefings, policy development, program analysis, and computer applications. Student interns gain experience in career fields available within the Acquisition workforce such as: Engineering, Contracting, Logistics, Business - Financial Management, Business - Cost Estimating, Information Technology, Test & Evaluation, Industrial Contract Property Management, Purchasing, Science and Technology, Production, Quality and Manufacturing, Facilities Engineering, and Program Management.
NAVAL RESEARCH ENTERPRISE INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
The Naval Research Enterprise Internship Program (NREIP) is a 10-week undergraduate and graduate research opportunity at one of 41 Naval Laboratories or Warfare Centers. Accepted students gain real-world, hands-on experience and research skills while being introduced to the Navy and Marine Corps science and technology environment.
SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM
The Science and Engineering Apprenticeship Program (SEAP) gives high school students an opportunity to participate for eight-weeks in a paid summer research project at various Department of Navy laboratories. Students gain real-world, hands-on experience and research skills while being exposed to DoD science and technology.
SCIENCE, MATHEMATICS AND RESEARCH FOR TRANSFORMATION (SMART)
The SMART Scholarship for Service Program has been established by DoD to support undergraduate and graduate students pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines. SMART also funds opportunities for current NAVFAC EXWC employees to pursue higher level degree opportunities.
