Do you have what it takes?

RCS Grows Experts

Are you passionate about innovation that impacts the world? Looking for an internship that can catapult your career? Learn hands-on as you collaborate along side the world’s best cognitive systems design team.

“I learned more in my first 2 weeks at RCS than in most of my semester-long courses.”

Dive Into the Challenge

As an RCS intern, you’ll learn first hand how to become a cognitive problem solver – the foundational skills of a world-class Cognitive Systems Engineer (CSE). You’ll gain the immediate benefits of “compressed learning” by working as part of a small, cutting edge team on projects that blend the art of Industrial Engineering, Human Factors, Computer Science, and Data Science.

You’ll work on the design of information systems that enable advanced human decision-making in complex mission environments. You’ll prototype, test, and deploy real-world decision support systems that are cognitively resilient and comfortable for users. Who knows, maybe your fingerprints will be all over a new game-changing customer solution!

“I can’t imagine an internship with more hands-on experience or a friendlier group of people.”



Hong-En Chen | Penn State University

“I dived into an existing project on day 1 and was able to learn and apply our methodology in parallel with training material. I learned more in my first 2 weeks at RCS than in most of my semester-long courses.”

Thomas Rasmussen | Carnegie Mellon University

“Working at RCS challenged my critical thinking and work ethic, improving both in the process. I can’t imagine an internship with more hands-on experience or a friendlier group of people.”

Meghan Faber | The Ohio State University

“I was treated like a real engineer the day I started my internship at RCS. I've gained real world experience in design, software, and cognitive systems engineering in a fast paced, hands-on and highly collaborative environment. It's challenging, but it's a lot of fun.”

Martin Bantchev | University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

“My first day at RCS I was promised that the work would be hard, and it definitely has been, but I am proud of everything that I did and everything I learned. My intern experience has been extremely fulfilling and deepened the way I approach problem solving in general.”
