University Programs

We proudly partner with colleges and universities to offer students valuable, hands-on work experience with a leading GovCon technology provider.

Bright Futures Begin Today

Through the Cognosante University Engagement program, students approach and solve business and technology challenges through meaningful work and build a professional foundation to propel them in the future.
As employees on teams from Data Science to Human Resources to Operations, students support and lead team projects, gain valuable work experience, and build relationships with other early career students and professionals. Our student programs also offer mentoring opportunities, power skills training, and countless networking opportunities.
We extend our core values of Value, Innovation, Performance, and Sharing (VIPS) to our university relations program. Cognosante thoughtfully and intentionally established partnerships and programs designed to develop the next generation of leaders ‚ÄĒ not just in business and technology, but in our increasingly global society.

Partnerships for Progress

Part of Cognosante’s evolving and enduring commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility, we established key student programs focused on offering growth opportunities to various marginalized populations in our communities. In collaboration with our HBCU Partner Alliance and Women in STEM partner institutions, we help ensure tomorrow’s leaders are unencumbered by biases that traditionally created barriers to their success in the past.

Both programs enhance career readiness by encouraging students to foster new ideas and add their diverse viewpoints in a corporate environment.

HBCU Partner Alliance

Built through a targeted collaboration with Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Cognosante’s HBCU Partner Alliance prepares students and recent graduates for promising careers in IT and government contracting.

Women in STEM

In partnership with women’s colleges, Cognosante’s Women in STEM program increases access to IT careers for women technologists and exposes non-technologists to the skills needed for a career in business, strategy, or operations.

Student and Early Career Opportunities
