Back in December, Mason signed an Education Partnership Agreement for 
Student Internship with the Department of Defense Cyber Crime Center 
(DC3).  Dr. Avinash Srinivasan from the Department of Computer Science 
initiated this partnership and he worked very closely with Office of 
Sponsored Programs in finalizing the collaboration. This Agreement 
offers students the opportunity to gain practical experience in their 
individual academic area of study.  It provides an environment to find 
mentors who, based on experiences and professional connections, will 
assist students in learning about the field of cyber crime.  The DC3 
internship program enables students to conduct cooperative research, 
gain hands-on experience, and share lessons to assist in the learning 
process, and find solutions to challenges, while gaining important 
knowledge from expert practitioners.

Through this Partnership Agreement, DC3 encourages the education of 
graduate and undergraduate students and Mason faculty by providing a 
mechanism under which selected students and faculty can participate in 
projects of interest to DC3 and Mason.  These projects benefit interns 
and faculty and may provide special knowledge, job experience, 
certifications and academic credit.  Interns and faculty also benefit 
from working in unique facilities, working with unique equipment and 
interacting with DC3 staff.  This partnership is tailored toward the 
identification and development of new cyber talent, and accelerates 
skills and career path development for the new DoD workforce.

Mason students from various disciplines and all campuses can participate 
in this internship program and have the opportunity of working on 
bleeding edge research and development at DC3 facility. For more 
information please contact the Program Manager.
