This opportunity is for two students currently undertaking undergraduate or postgraduate study in information technology or computer science and intending to continue full-time study in 2022, to be part of a team assisting Tata Consultancy Services with their customer relationships.

The interns will be provided with an opportunity to understand how Tata Consultancy Services provides solutions to customers in the banking industry, and build knowledge on how business requirements translate into technology needs and how to incorporate data into business decisions. These are virtual/online internships, but the interns may have an opportunity to visit the TCS office in New Zealand.
