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.

Winter 2007 Undergraduate Internships at CAIA
Monday June 18th 2007 --- Friday July 27th 2007

CAIA is offering three internships over winter 2007 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 data networking and be at least intensely curious about research in Internet protocol design, development and evaluation.

The internships will be 6 weeks long - beginning Monday June 18th 2007 and ending Friday July 27th 2007 (the duration of our new 'winter term'). Applicants will be expected to be available for the entire period.

Potential applicants must make initial contact with CAIA by midday, Monday May 21st 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.


A tax-exempt stipend of $350/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 May 25th 2007. Where an objective tie-break is required, we will chose the person whose SSH key arrived first (in step 2 above).
