Role Overview

Would you like to play a part in developing next-generation technology while working alongside and learning from some of the world’s best engineers? 

If you are seeking an exciting role – Arm is the place for you.


Arm’s University and Education Research programs aim to champion and build communities of practice for academics, teachers, learners and related developers. The goal is to address potential gaps in skills for those in education/research or in the early stages of their careers. Increasingly, we achieve this at scale by catalysing partners but also continue to build and maintain a product and service roadmap of our own that.


We are now seeking an intern to work with us in developing our offer and helping to encourage and grow a community of practice. Your work will involve:

  • Developing educational material to aid teaching based on Arm and partner technologies, as well as supporting technical customer inquiries
  • Collaborating with academics and contributors.
  • Development of software tools for automation, and work with internal and external partners to guarantee accurate legal and quality standards.


Required Skills and Experience:
We are looking for the next generation of innovative students to join us! You will need to be studying towards a degree in Electronic Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics or any other relevant subject. Other degree types may be considered with relevant experience.


“Nice To Have” Skills and Experience:
Additionally, candidates will be required to demonstrate understanding and experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • Microcontroller or development board programming
  • Embedded Systems
  • Machine Learning
  • Computer Architecture
  • System on Chip design
  • Robotics
  • Digital Signal Processing
  • Graphics and Mobile Gaming
  • Operating systems
  • Embedded Linux


In return:
Throughout the internship we’ll support you with continuous learning and development through a blend of on the job and formal training, mentoring and a knowledge network.


Our programme is designed to give you the best start possible and support your personal growth as well as professional development. In addition to a competitive salary and rewards package, our on-the-job learning and mentoring/buddy schemes provide unparalleled learning and networking opportunities from the best in the industry.


We know how important it is to immerse yourself in working life right through your university experience – which is why we offer either a traditional internship (3, 6 or 12 month placements), or our two year Part-time Undergraduate Program allowing you to bridge the gap between study and the wide world of work.


It’s a different type of work experience that gives you the hands-on insight into the industry you desire alongside the education you need to succeed. Find out more about the PTUG program here. You don’t need to decide your program until the offer stage, and we’ll be here to help you pick the best option for you. It doesn’t matter whether you’re aiming for a bachelor’s, master’s, or PhD, the opportunities are limitless on Arm.
