Careers in Electrical and Computer Engineering
Cooperative education involves engineering experience at a nearby company for a one semester plus a summer. The student is paid, in addition to gaining priceless experience. There are more co-op positions available than students who want to take them; so this opportunity is readily available and we encourage everyone to take it. See Career Services for more information.
Anheuser-Busch are interested in recruiting engineers from Uconn for fulltime and Co-op positions. If interested please E-mail your resume to email@example.com. It would be forwarded to the UCONN IEEE contact in Anheuser-Busch.
Internships are engineering positions taken during the summer months. Like co-ops, these are paid positions. The internship provides valuable experience, without taking a regular semester. However, the shorter time span limits the scope of projects that can be undertaken. See Career Services for more information.
There are multiple paid intern positions open in the UTC Power engineering department. Hiring managers are looking for students in the following engineering disciplines: Chemical, Software, Material Science, Computer Systems, Electrical, and Mechanical. See http://www.utcpower.com and click on the 'careers' section for more information.
There is a Co-op/intern opportunity at Pratt & Whitney's Materials Center of Excellence in East Hartford. If you are interested, please contact Dr. Robert Tomastik, a UConn graduate. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org

East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes (EAPSI) A funding program is available through the National Science Foundation (NSF) called the East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes (EAPSI). The EAPSI program offers U.S. graduate students in science and engineering a unique opportunity to study abroad with foreign researchers (in Australia, China, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Singapore, or Taiwan) for 8 weeks during the summer. In 2008, the EAPSI awards will include a stipend of $5,000, an allowance for international travel, and support to attend a pre-departure orientation in Washington DC. Foreign co-sponsoring organizations will provide additional support to cover EAPSI students' living expenses abroad.
- Feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions about the EAPSI program.
