PAID internships available for Engineering students
The Regional Internships in Science & Engineering (RISE) program is currently seeking students studying engineering who are interested in interviewing for PAID internship opportunities available for the summer of 2016. We are specifically recruiting engineering majors studying civil, environmental, electrical, mechanical and construction management.
The RISE program is sponsored by the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District and is a great opportunity for under-represented engineering students to be hired for a paid internship with top firms in Wisconsin. Students will also receive leadership development training during their internship engagement.
Please share this email with any student who might be interested, and who meet the basic criteria - grew up in and/or attended high school in the Metropolitan Milwaukee area, and currently pursuing an engineering degree at a four year college or university. Those with specific questions about whether they qualify should contact Keesha Sutton at 414-847-0990 x 477 or at email@example.com.
We can come to you!
A RISE representative can come to your school to talk about the program! Contact us to schedule a meeting.
