As part of a broader organisational restructure, data networking research at Swinburne University of Technology has moved from the Centre for Advanced Internet Architecture (CAIA) to the Internet For Things (I4T) Research Lab.

Although CAIA no longer exists, this website reflects CAIA's activities and outputs between March 2002 and February 2017, and is being maintained as a service to the broader data networking research community.

Summer 2007/2008 Undergraduate Internships at CAIA
Monday December 4th 2007 --- Friday February 16th 2008

Applications are now closed re-opened for Summer 2007/2008

CAIA is offering three two internships over the summer 2007/2008 break for students who have completed at least 2 years of a Telecommunications Engineering, Electronic Engineering or Computer Engineering bachelors degree at an Australian university (or an approved double-degree containing one of those degree programs). The ideal candidates will have a strong interest in IP data networking and be curious about research in Internet protocol design, development and evaluation.

The internships will last for 10 or 11 weeks, from Monday December 4th 2007 to
Friday February 9th 2008 OR to Friday February 16th 2008. Applicants are expected to be available for the entire 10 or 11 week period (except for one week of break between Christmas and New Year).

Potential applicants should make initial contact with CAIA by midday, Monday November 12th 2007 .


Successful applicants will be assigned to a project based on our evaluation of applicant skillset and academic record. You will work with a member of CAIA Research staff as directed by Associate Professor Grenville Armitage


Internships are an opportunity to explore life in a research centre, collaborate with experienced academic staff and do a research project outside the boundaries of a regular undergraduate curriculum.

You will begin to appreciate the combination of action and imagination that drives modern data networking research.
You may even have fun.


A tax-exempt stipend of $400/week will be paid to each intern under this scheme.

This internship is limited to students who meet the following criteria:

The application is in four parts. (Yes, this is a modest screening process.)

Note: Applications MUST be in pdf (with .pdf extension) or ASCII text (with .txt extension). Applications submitted in MS Word, OpenOffice, or any other format (including snail mail) will be ignored.

Final selection of applicants:

We may choose to use followup phone or in-person interviews to make our final selection. More details will be available after November 16th 2007. Where an objective tie-break is required, we will chose the person whose SSH key arrived first (in step 2 above).
