Washington Internships for Students of Engineering (WISE) program

Washington Internships for Students of Engineering (WISE) program

Each summer, AIChE brings undergraduate students to Washington, DC, as part of the Washington Internships for Students of Engineering (WISE) program.

The WISE program offers a unique opportunity for eligible engineering students to spend a summer in Washington learning how government officials make decisions on complex technological issues and how engineers can contribute to legislative and regulatory policy decisions.

Students meet with leaders in Congress and the Administration, prominent non-governmental organizations, and industry.  Working under the direction of a faculty-member-in-residence, students prepare papers on a current engineering-related public policy issue that is important to their sponsoring society.

Outstanding engineering students who display evidence of leadership skills and have a keen interest in public policy should apply.

Applicant must be:

  • Junior or senior undergraduate engineering student or recent graduate beginning Masters level study in technology policy-related degree
  • U.S. citizen or permanent resident.

Under-represented minority students are encouraged to apply.

DEADLINE:  31 DECEMBER 2014 (postmarked)
