Netaş COOP, a long-term internship program launched in 2014, offers nearly 100 students full-time internship opportunities at Netaş R&D Center every year. The program, which is held for three months in three terms – the fall, spring and summer, accepts 3rd and 4th grade students studying in computer, electrical & electronics and communication engineering departments.
Students who take an active role in projects such as VoIP switchboard design, VoIP and web security, IPv6, JITC, Log Wizard, Smart Office and Application Server Replacement and who successfully complete their internship are offered a part-time job while their education continues. Thus, they both continue their training and development processes in the company and gain professional R&D experience. With this program, full-time job offers are made to candidates who have 8-18 months of experience in Netaş technologies, embrace the corporate culture, and prove themselves with their success, passing a certain evaluation criteria and want to shape their careers at Netaş.

To date, 250 out of 1,032 students who have participated in the program have joined the Netaş family on a part-time or full-time basis.
