This summer, ten local college students completed our 2017 internship program entitled “Fueling Your Curiosity.” We received hundreds of applications from colleges throughout the state, yet only a handful of candidates were selected. At SEBCSI, our work is geared towards innovation. We seek to establish energy efficient ways to service our clients and the planet, so we sought to center this year’s internship program around those ideals.
The 9-week program ran from June 5 to August 4, with the candidates being split into two groups of five. Each member represented the different roles within our company: Estimator, Project Manager, Hardware Designer, Software Designer, and Technician. The two teams were tasked with the goal of developing a creative solution that utilized Schneider Electric products from several business units. Interns were expected to install and wire multiple hardware components including a solar panel and battery backup, as well as create an elegant and professional software dashboard to display and analyze their data. Additionally, the teams had to create a hardware model and/or simulation of an application of Schneider technologies in a business unit outside of the building industry.
The interns are currently students at the University of Maryland College Park, and the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, which are also the alma maters of many members of the SEBCSI family. Kevin Boenning, Daniel Kozlowski, Noah Becker, Chelsie Marsh, and Nicole Convissar made up Team Uncontrolled Curiosity. Rachel Romano, Charles Yang, Tiffany Jachja, Eliza Engelsman, and Daniel Mayer made up Team Innovex. We were exceptionally pleased with the outcome of the program, and we look forward to supervising similar projects with future interns!
