Two new universities have joined the project of Comunes: the Department of Computer Science at the American University of Science & Technology (Beirut) and the Faculty of Sociology and Political Sciences at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, through its Master in Research Methods in Sociology. From now on, these institutions offer their students the opportunity to make their final projects in any area of study within the framework of Comunes.
Thus, these two schools join the initiative that the Universidad Rey Juan Carlos de Madrid began, as the last semester six students from its Master of Free Software made their internships within Comunes.
Comunes offers trainings & internships, allowing anyone to become part of the community behind Comunes projects, at least temporarily, under the guidance and support of the members of the community. Note that, as a community-driven non-profit, no one behind Comunes receives any kind of salary or economic compensation for their work.
The typical profile for the technical trainings is grad/undergrad students focusing on Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence, or Free Open Source Software degrees. However, there are also multiple non-technical trainings available. So anyone is more than welcome!
If you are interested in a particular profile, or would like to try several of them, please contact us and we’ll see how to arrange it. Also, if you collaborate in an institution that would be interested to know more about how to offer Comunes internships, or thesis/final project guidance, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
