Cook Inlet Tribal Council (CITC) is excited to offer internship opportunities in our digital fabrication resource center (Fab Lab).   Created in partnership with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the Fab Lab is a state of the art educational space that challenges youth to connect to their full science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) potential.  The variety of tools and techniques available merge the latest technology with architecture and construction.  The goal is to use cutting edge tools and techniques and apply them to cultural ideals to expand students’ creative thought processes.  In the Fab Lab Alaska’s future leaders in engineering, design, artistry and innovation are able to further develop their skill set.   Samples of the computer numerical controlled (CNC) machines available in our Fab Lab include:

  • laser-powered cutter and etcher that works with wood, acrylic and other materials
  • A vinyl cutter used for graphics and masking applications
  • a mini desktop milling machine that plots copper and other materials to make antennae, circuit boards and more
  • large robotic router system
  • an industrial embroidery machine
  • 3D printers capable of producing fully assembled objects with moving parts

CITC recruits highly motivated full or part-time college students currently enrolled in or recently graduated from an undergraduate/graduate degree program or technical training school.  Please visit for available internship positions, a full job description, and a CITC internship application.
