Iowa companies or agencies submit potential intern projects for consideration. The DNR matches upper-level engineering students with specific projects based on each student's coursework, academic performance, experience, technical and communication skills.
After one week of training with P2 program staff the intern serves at the host facility for eleven weeks, where they analyze the current process, research strategies, calculate cost comparisons and implement improvements. After writing a final report documenting results and recommendations, the intern presents this information to management at the host company and writes a case summary of the project.
Internships will begin on May 22, 2023 and end on August 11, 2023.
While on-site the intern reports to a company supervisor, who provides daily supervision, company resources, and ensures company support of the project and implementation. Technical advisers with the program provide interns with resources, tools and technical support, and guidance throughout their internship.
** Students are not trained in or qualified to assess regulatory compliance issues. **
