Google announces the second year of STEP internships in Europe (formerly Engineering Trainee Summer Program). Students, who have completed the first year of their university studies by summer of 2013 and are studying computer science or related subjects will be selected to participate in the program. This program includes three main components: a software project, skills-based training, and professional development. We will have STEP cohorts in four offices this year: London, Munich, Krakow and Zurich.
