akamai project examples, by field and interest

Akamai interns are placed with a specific mentor and project upon acceptance to the program. Applicants are asked to identify past projects that align with their interests, which helps the selection committee make matches between applicants and mentors. Examples of projects, by major or field of study are below.

Also review a complete list of all past projects found on the past alumni and projects page and where interns do their internships, by location and industry.
