I coordinate a summer internship program focused on providing technical assistance to businesses and other organizations. The program places highly motivated senior and graduate level engineering students at facilities to work on resource reduction and waste reduction projects for 11 weeks during the summer. My program provides 75% of the intern's stipend and the host organization provides 25%.
We are looking for additional intern hosts for this summer and for summer 2017.
