We’re here to help!
Go Green in the City:
an Open Challenge to U.S. University Students
Schneider Electric is sponsoring a program that might be of interest! Don’t let the near deadline bum you out…get started and see if you have the answer to global energy concerns!
Go Green in the City is an international case challenge for university business and engineering students around the world to find clever solutions to energy management. Teams must consist of two university engineering or business students (at least one team-member must be a woman) who are in their 2nd to final year of a university-level degree program in Brazil, China, Germany, France, India, Russia, Turkey or the USA.
The 100 best teams are guaranteed an interview for internships and exposure to job opportunities. Schneider Electric will fly the 25 best teams to the city of light, Paris, in June 2011 to make their final presentations in front of a VIP panel of judges. Please access the website via the link below to view all details of the competition.
The deadline for applications is March 11.

2011 Summer EIP Program
A summer internship in Indiana could be just a few clicks away, if you chose to participate in the Entrepreneurial Internship Program. Nine Indiana companies have been selected to hire Rose-Hulman students to work for them this summer, and all of these positions will be posted through eRecruiting.
The goal is to connect Rose-Hulman students with Indiana companies that will not only offer engineering experience, but also exposure to the trials and tribulations of starting and running your own business. If you are hired through this program, you will be required to do an end-of-summer presentation, describing the work you accomplished during your internship.
Not all companies have posted positions yet, but some have already begun the interview process, and additional companies will be coming to our April 13th spring fair.
The companies to watch for are:
Peyton Technical Services
Nidec Motor Corporation
Those companies represent the following majors: BE, ME, EE, CS/SE, CPE and CHE. If you would like to make contact with any of these companies or learn more about the program, please contact Kathy Kassissieh, Assistant Director of Career Services, email@example.com.
