Exelaration Opens Software Development Center on Centennial Campus

The company offers undergraduate software engineers paid internships and mentoring from experienced developers.

Exelaration, a software development and tech mentorship company, has opened a new center on NC State’s Centennial Campus. The company provides undergraduate software engineers paid internships and mentoring from experienced developers while working on real-world projects.

“We’re excited to open our NC State Exelaration Center on Centennial Campus,” said CEO Steve Cooper. “We look forward to connecting NC State students with opportunities to work on real client projects alongside our team of seasoned professionals.”

Exelaration started on Virginia Tech’s campus 12 years ago and is expanding in Raleigh due to the density of top engineering talent at NC State as well as the region’s demand for a trained tech workforce.

Teams of expert technologists paired with student developers deliver software solutions for clients such as startups, Fortune 500 companies, federal agencies and nonprofits. For example, Exelaration provided a full refresh to the backend of the Peace Corps’ website, automating volunteer openings within their applicant tracking system.

Student interns are paid and work part-time at the Exelaration Center near their respective college campus while providing remote software development support to clients around the world. Interns grow their applied skills in programming languages such as C#, .NET, Java, Python and Ruby.

NC State’s Partnerships Office worked with the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina, Wake County Economic Development and the Raleigh Chamber of Commerce to support Exelaration’s expansion in Raleigh.

The new Exelaration Center will be located in the Research IV building on Centennial Campus. To learn more about internship opportunities, visit
