New Opportunity for Students to Engage with Campus Solar Installations

Low costs, consumer demands, and organizational commitments to mitigate climate change have resulted in rapid growth of the renewable energy industry that is transforming how the US and the world generates energy.

In response to growing student interest in renewable energy careers, the Office of Sustainability is launching a new program that will provide students direct exposure to the engineering, business, and policy behind campus solar projects. The new program — the Renewable Energy Student Engagement Team (RESET) — will also provide students opportunities to interact with and learn from professionals working in solar project development, project finance, system engineering, and project construction.

Students participating in RESET will have a unique opportunity to be involved with a significant upcoming campus solar project. RESET students will gain direct field-based experience, learn from professionals, and build knowledge about the many facets and disciplines required for successful project development and execution. The knowledge and skills developed throughout the course of the program will help prepare students for internships and jobs in the renewable energy industry.

RESET is now recruiting students with interests in business, policy, and/or engineering aspects of the renewable energy industry. RESET is a co-curricular learning and networking opportunity. Participating students will not receive course credit or pay. Download this flier for more information.

Interested in the RESET program? All interested students must attend one of the two info sessions listed below where they will learn more about the program and how to apply.
