The Energy, Environment and Sustainability Internship Program is a multi-stakeholder program that places students in research and project teams, while simultaneously providing professional development and enrichment training. The program is a partnership between the International Center for Energy, Environment and Sustainability (InCEES), Washington University Climate Change Program (WUCCP), and the Environmental Studies Program. When a student joins our internship program, they obtain professional experiences outside of the classroom that provide additional skills and learning experiences. In addition, the internships allow students opportunities to interact with alumni and showcase their research and project outcomes. These activities are just a few of the experiences that enhance their effectiveness and strategically position them for a range of careers in the sustainability field. The EES Internship Program grew out of the internship program coordinated by the Office of Sustainability (OOS) since 2011. Today, in conjunction with our university partners we continue to educate and prepare the next generation of leaders and researchers in energy, environment and sustainability.
The Washington University Climate Change Program (WUCCP) works to connect and effectively inform a global network of institutions, scholars, practitioners and citizens to address significant climate related challenges.
The Impact Internships embed students within St. Louis organizations, allowing them to practically apply their knowledge and skills for engaging with environmental issues that impact our communities.
The International Center for Environment, Energy and Sustainability (INCEES) seeks to catalyze and coordinate university wide, regional, and international collaborative research in the areas of energy, environment and sustainability.
