Interested in gaining hands on experience in the field of energy efficiency? SLIM is now accepting applications for the 2013 SLIM/INNOVATE Hawaii Internship, taking place August – December 2013.
Students will be trained in data collection tool use, data collection spreadsheet management and technical report writing. Training will take place in a 2-day, pre-semester training, as well as a one-hour class each week. Interns will work in teams of two, directly with local manufacturing companies. Using state-of-the-art equipment, interns will help companies assess their energy use and/or environmental footprint and develop an understanding of appropriate technologies and strategies for improving production processes. Each participant will complete a 75-hour minimum, supervised project working with a Maui manufacturing company (approximately 5 hours per week over the 15 week semester). Students will receive an $800 stipend for the completion of this program. Twelve interns will be selected; those selected will be notified by June 1.
