Important note: The continuing COVID-19 pandemic makes it difficult to predict whether students studying outside of Taiwan will be allowed to enter for summer internship this year. The current (as of 1/26/22) regulations limit entry to Taiwan to citizens and residents except in special circumstances, and require anyone entering Taiwan to quarantine for 14 days; ITRI regulations require an additional 7 days before entering ITRI facilities. Since ITRI cannot allow anyone to quarantine in our housing, and cannot be responsible for the expense individuals incur for their quarantine, this means that only if these regulations are relaxed significantly will we be able to host any intern from outside Taiwan (unless they have family or friends who can help with quarantine arrangements). So, if you are outside Taiwan, you are welcome to apply for these internships, but you should be aware that there is a significant likelihood that ultimately you will not be able to come here for internship this summer. We plan to reassess the situation in April and make final decisions at that time.

Internship Program Details and Application Information
Accepted interns MUST be able to provide documentary evidence from the university of student status during and after the entire period of the internship.
Candidates must hold a valid passport from a country other than Taiwan (ROC).
Summer Interns should be available to work for at least 10 weeks between May and September. Longer internships of 4-6 months are possible throughout the year.
Dates are flexible depending on student and department needs, and are decided case-by-case when acceptance offers are made. Please indicate your desired internship dates in your application.
What ITRI Provides
[Note: The package described below is standard, but may vary significantly depending on the circumstances; details of your offer will be confirmed if you are selected.]
Free on-site accommodation on ITRI campus - modern dormitories on a spacious campus with dining and recreational facilities
Monthly stipend (before taxes): NT$22,000 – NT$36,000 per month, depending on student’s experience and department’s situation; if you are offered a position, the offer will specify the stipend and other details.
Free ITRI Group Insurance (Note: this is Accident Insurance - those who want full medical coverage must purchase it independently.)
When is the application deadline?
Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. We remove positions as they are filled, so if a position is still posted in our internship application system that means application is still open.
For internships at other times of year there is no specific deadline; please apply 3-4 months before you hope to start your internship to allow enough time for all arrangements to be made.
Unless otherwise specified, the working language for these internships will be English; if knowledge of Mandarin is required it is noted in the Job Description / Qualifications.
Unless otherwise specified in your offer, interns are responsible for travel expenses to and from ITRI’s Taiwan campuses.
ITRI will obtain work (internship) permission for accepted interns, who must then obtain ROC visas from the nearest Taiwan Economic and Cultural Office before departing their home country (for locations/more info click here).
For ROC citizens
If you are an ROC citizen who does not hold any foreign passport, you are not eligible for the International Internship Program positions on this website. For those who hold only ROC citizenship, ITRI does offer internships, but this is handled separately by each department. If you are interested, please send your CV/resume to talent AT itri.org.tw, with a brief message indicating which department(s) are of interest to you.
Foreign males of Taiwanese descent, between ages 18 and 40 (inclusive), and carrying foreign passports are not advised to stay in Taiwan for more than four months. If you participate in this program and decide to arrive earlier or leave later than the scheduled program dates, the total length of your stay in Taiwan should not exceed four months to avoid conscription problems. For more details on military service, please check with your nearest ROC embassy, consulate or representative office, or with the Ministry of the Interior.
