R&D Internship Challenge – for Students & Local Industry
*Student Information Session TONIGHT (Thursday, Dec. 13), at 6:00 PM @Open Source Maker Lab*
Obtaining a certificate or degree is an essential step for most STEM career positions. However, there are many soft and hard skills required to be successful in these career paths that are not addressed within academic curricula. Additionally, finding an internship that provides one with an opportunity to gain these skills, is suitably challenging, emphasizes group work and collaboration, and allows the student to have one-on-one mentoring time can be difficult.
Open Source Maker Lab (OSML)is now offering a challenge-based internship program in collaboration with Palomar and Mira Costa Colleges, where candidates work in multidisciplinary teams to solve real-world problems with hard constraints in an industrial work environment. Candidates will work to solve a technical problem which may have a wide range of innovative solutions, will have access to mentors and resources, and will be able to interact directly with local hiring companies. Unlike traditional internships, participants will interact with multiple hiring companies, resulting in a greater hiring potential. Participants will work on building their resume with hard & soft skills and hands on experience while applying their academic foundation to produce a solution to the challenge problem. Individuals will gain both technical and career mentoring, letters of recommendation, and work study credit.
Palomar College recently announced an opening for a Technology Support Specialist position.
You can find out more information through the Employment Opportunities link on the Palomar College Human Resources page or here.
Applications close on November 13, 2018.

Palomar College Competes in its First Cybersecurity Competition
I would like to take the time to announce that Palomar College competed in its first cybersecurity competition this year. We had 4 brave students compete in the National Cybersecurity League (NCL) cyber competition during the month of April. The NCL is a virtual training ground and competition series that provides students an environment to learn and challenge themselves by solving complex questions using industry-recognized competencies such as cryptography, log analysis, network packet analysis, password cracking, and python code comprehension.
I had the pleasure of working with these students and watching how quickly they embraced the NCL environment and put their best foot forward. With that being said, I would like to recognize the following students for their wiliness to participate, their drive to succeed, and their spirit of life-long learning. They did very well in the competition and chose to further compete in the post-season event as a team, which I believe is a testament to them and the NCL program as a whole.
I would like to congratulate the following students on a job well done!

- Jennifer Bate
