SyracuseCoE helps companies provide students with invaluable “real-world” experience

SyracuseCoE is seeking applications from its industry partners for funding available through the 2020 Summer Industry Collaboration Internship Program.  The program supports paid internship opportunities for SyracuseCoE Partner Program companies to host a student pursuing a degree in science, engineering, or architecture. Throughout the course of the internship, the student will increase his or her knowledge and technical skills by engaging in hands-on work at SyracuseCoE Partner firms related to indoor environmental quality (IEQ), high performance/green building, clean and renewable energy, and water resources.

In addition to providing experiential learning, the program also aims to give students the opportunity to establish valuable relationships with local industry leaders and increase post-graduation retention in the Central Upstate region of New York. Interns will be invited to SyracuseCoE networking events throughout the summer, and they will develop and present an end-of-summer poster showcasing the project(s) on which he/she worked.

To date, 32 companies and 99 students have participated in this program, which is supported by annual fees paid by companies that participate in the SyracuseCoE Partner Program. This year, SyracuseCoE intends to fund up to 8 summer internships at Partner firms, with each commitment providing up to $3,000 per company. The deadline to apply is February 28th.
