Featured Programs

One of our internship supervisors, Peregrine Technologies CEO & Founder, Steffen Heinrich, shared with us their philosophy on how to create an environment where interns are able to meet their goals:

"I want to create value for the students and for the company. First, the internship must be fun and as an intern I should be able to learn a lot. I am a strong believer that a student should always have responsibility for a dedicated project that she or he creates, runs and evaluates as part of the internship. In a virtual setting this is even more important."
