Edison Innovative Power LLC (EIP) recently announced the expansion of its paid internship program, recruiting six student interns from CNY universities specializing in mechanical, software, computer, and electrical engineering.
Initially co-funded by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), the semi-annual EIP Internship Program was designed to help prepare the next generation of clean energy workers through internships for students and recent graduates at New York State’s clean energy companies.
The program began with three interns, and now with additional support from The Tech Garden, EIP has expanded the program to offer the opportunity to six students, with two more planned for the fall.
The internships include Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, and Software Engineering, with students selected for the Fall/Winter program from R.I.T., SUNY Polytech, SUNY Binghamton, and Union College.
“The synergy between the clean-tech business landscape and the abundance of outstanding engineering programs at colleges and universities across Central New York provides an excellent opportunity for these students,” said James Morrison, CEO & Founder of Edison Innovative Power. “We’re excited to partner with NYSERDA’s Clean Tech Center and The Tech Garden to offer students real-world experience working alongside our veteran engineering and design teams to make the next generation of high voltage products. These interns have provided impactful contributions to the design, construction, and testing of our new technologies, and that’s indicative of the quality of the education at these academic institutions.”
The company plans to continue the EIP Internship Program in 2020, and hopes to expand it further with additional Central New York partners.
