Our activities and programmes in Ireland include:

IBM Academic Initiative

Extreme Blue Internship Programme

Extreme Blue is IBM's premier internship programme, it began in the USA in 1999 and the IBM Ireland Lab has been successfully running Extreme Blue since 2003. What's special about Extreme Blue is its focus on innovative leading-edge projects, top talent and its agile approach. Teams of four students will work on technical prototyping/problem-solving as well as the developing the go-to-market plan around these.
