Amy helps Google to work with universities

Amy Guy - Google Intern Amy Guy studies Web Technology at Lincoln and made the most of her summer break by undertaking a three month work placement at Google as a University Programs Intern.

Amy said: “I loved my time at Google and I got to work on a number of projects. My role involved supporting the University Programmes team as they forge links between Google Engineering and the academic world, throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

“I joined the Women in Technology Society at University and I met two really good mentors: a Professor and a PhD student.  Through them I went to a couple of conferences and got a placement with Google through someone I met at a conference.  It’s really valuable to network and meet people in the industry. 

“The staff in my department all encourage and support students getting involved like this. It makes learning more meaningful if you are actually learning by doing rather than by being told.”
