Dell internship program

April 12, 2019 


Fifteen Pflugerville ISD students are taking part in a unique high school internship program at Dell with the support of the company’s product engineers.

Qualifying students with computer science, health sciences and engineering backgrounds from Connally, Hendrickson and Pflugerville high schools have begun work at the Dell campus on Parmer Lane in Austin, alongside software developers in the Client Product Group – Software Engineering section.

“Pflugerville ISD is excited to continue a partnership with Dell that provides PfISD high school seniors an opportunity to participate in an amazing work-based learning experience through a group project based on real Dell work,” said Traci Hendrix PfISD Career and Technical Education director. “Partnerships like this one are vital to the success of career and technical education [CTE] programs and we could not prepare students for life success without wonderful supporters like Dell.”

PfISD and Dell officials worked together in the initial offering of the internship program last year. Thirteen PfISD students took part, working on a virtual reality project with the support of Dell product engineers.

In order to participate, students must be at least 18 years old and have a class schedule allowing them to travel to Dell for at least two hours a day, three days a week. This year’s 10-week program began March 4.
