Data Center Management (DCM) Intern Program

About the Program / Responsibilities:

The Data Center Management (DCM) Intern Program is a 12-week program that provides students with real world exposure to Data Center Management and Technology. Participants will gain experience through a hands-on approach to manage a data center. Positions in this program will be available at NSA Washington-Ft. Meade, NSA Texas-San Antonio, and NSA Utah-outside of Salt Lake City.

DCM is a dynamic field created to govern the facilities and complex engineering frameworks that support massive parallel computing systems. DCM involves an unprecedented integrated approach that combines power and HVAC engineering disciplines with information technology. All of these branches of knowledge join together to help create a safe and secure environment where parallel computing systems and their infrastructure can operate at peak efficiency with optimal potential for future expansion. DCM also ensures that efficient and forward-thinking practices are implemented during the design, construction, installation, and maintenance projects that occur regularly within the walls of an operating data center.
Applicable areas of study include, but are not limited to:

' Mechanical Engineering
' Electrical/Power Engineering
' Industrial Control Systems
' Information Technology/Networking
Previous intern projects have included:
- Research of Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) tools, which are software based programs to better manage most aspects of a data center.
- Creation of server room layouts to optimize efficiency of a data center.
- Use of 6 Sigma Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) tool to better understand how certain factors affect the IT environment.
- Research to prevent overheating of data centers.
- Physical, hands-on moving of IT equipment and infrastructure to improve data center efficiency.
