Pixar's Undergraduate Program

Since 2008, Pixar has invited a few promising undergraduate technical artists to intern at Pixar as part of the Pixar Technical Undergraduate Program, otherwise known as "PUP," where they spend the summer learning Pixar's pipeline from people working in production, getting to know both the tools and philosophies Pixar uses to make animated feature films.

Applying to the Program

For those interested in joining the program, please visit the Pixar website and if you want to learn a little more about what it's like to be a PUP, check out this fun article on 2017 PUPs.
