IDT Internships and Co-ops

Innovative Defense Technologies (IDT) works closely with several universities to find qualified and motivated students for its Internship and Co-operative education (Co-op) programs. IDT interns and co-ops have the opportunity to work alongside professionals in the Software Engineering and Systems Engineering fields. They gain valuable, hands-on experience helping IDT build automated testing and analysis solutions for its customers in the Department of Defense (DOD).
