The World Trade Centre Mechanical Engineering Internship program is designed to provide engineering interns with an opportunity to develop their technical skills through work on a variety of critical engineering projects.
The program offers internships to young engineers who have a passion for engineering and engineering related technologies.
The program has been running since 2014.
Now, the program has launched a new program, The World Trade Centres Engineering Internships, and it is launching in the US and Canada.
“We are excited to be expanding the program to new regions,” said Julie Leighton, a program manager with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in a press release.
“The program is now a full-fledged internship program in each of the 50 states and is now looking to expand globally.”
The internship program is offered in conjunction with the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Engineers (IAMAI) and the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE).
The goal is to help young engineers get an edge by gaining practical experience on technical projects.
The interns will be tasked with developing and testing new types of sensors and automation systems for the WTC, the Pentagon, and the World Financial Center.
In order to participate in the program, applicants must be a full time undergraduate student in engineering and must be able to demonstrate competence in a wide range of disciplines.
The internships are scheduled to last four weeks, with completion of the internship scheduled for June.
To be eligible for the program participants will have to be working on a critical project with a deadline of February or March of next year.
The National Institute for Standards and Technologies (NISOT) is a division of the National Science Foundation (NSF).
NSF is the agency that oversees the creation of the US Federal Government’s science and technology policy.
