TechPoint Xtern

Xtern Program

Are you familiar with TechPoint’s Xtern program? If you said no, then you might be surprised to know more than 2,000 students applied for business and technology internships with TechPoint’s Xtern summer 2021 program and some of those interns that secured a position are currently working and living in Muncie, Indiana.

TechPoint brands the Xtern internships as “the ultimate tech internship experience,” and locally, we have internships participating in the TechPoint Xtern Program. This summer Muncie has five companies hosting Xterns for the summer — Accutech Systems, First Merchants Bank, Magna PowerTrain, Mursix Corporation and the City of Muncie.  The Innovation Connector, while not hosting internships has been instrumental in organizing and participating with the Xtern program locally.

TechPoint Xtern launched in 2003 by the merging of the Indiana Software Association and the Indiana Information Technology Association. It is a leader in the Indiana technology industry and works each year to match business and technology students with internships at state companies.

Xtern is an Indianapolis-based program, but has partnered with businesses in South Bend and Bloomington previously, and now in Muncie.

Xtern Program – Muncie

Bringing the Xtern program to Muncie came from community collaboration with people already familiar with TechPoint and businesses and organizations leading the way in tech. He hopes Muncie will continue to be a satellite city for more Xterns in the future.

After the first summer program reaches its end, Anderson said TechPoint staff and partners will discuss how they can improve the program locally to continue to bring young, innovative talent to Muncie. Muncie Xterns will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in Muncie including a visit to Minnetrista and The Bob Ross Experience,  local dining, volunteer opportunities with local nonprofit organizations, such as Muncie’s Animal Rescue Fund, or through mentorship opportunities for young children learning technology concepts.

While here, they live on the campus of Ball State University in the Studebaker East Residence Hall.
