External Industry Events

External Industry Events

We encourage all CIIP interns to participate in various external industry events, if possible. It’s a great way to show off your hard work, while getting exposure to industry experts! Past student work has been displayed, demoed, or used at the following events: IETF, ODL Summit, Cisco Live (U.S. & international!), and OpenStack Summit.

Orientation Week

Throughout the week, you will prepare for your new role at Cisco and life in the U.S. Connect with your peers and learn the ins and outs of being a member of the Cisco family. We provide all of the tools and resources you need to be successful during your internship!

Mid-Year & Year-End Showcases

Mid-Year & Year-End Showcases

Interns present their work for all to see at our Mid-Year and Year-End Showcases. Exhibit your hard work and achievements amongst your peers, managers, executives and other Cisco employees! It’s also a great opportunity to practice your interpersonal and public speaking skills.

Lunch & Learns

As an avenue for networking and practicing presentation skills, Lunch & Learns give you the opportunity to present your Cisco projects to all employee levels! You’ll present the exciting things you’ve learned and what you’re currently working on in a causal setting. Of course, lunch is on us!

Cisco Headquarters

Cisco Headquarters

Our internship program takes places at Cisco headquarters, located in beautiful San Jose, California. Once you’re here it’s hard not to explore the beauty that California and the U.S. has to offer!
