SEDAC interns

Student Internships

SEDAC’s internship program provides University of Illinois students with a thorough foundation in understanding energy usage in buildings.  Interns are mentored by experienced engineers and architects as they participate in instruction, hands-on workshops, field experience, customer outreach, and individual projects related to building energy usage and other sustainability topics. Interns learn how to benchmark facilities, conduct site visits, do market research, analyze utility bills, calculate energy savings, write effective reports, do energy modeling, conduct emissions inventories and more.

We are very appreciative of the unique skills and talents our interns bring to SEDAC! Interns have shared their GIS and mapping expertise with us and have been the primary designers of our new website, logo and other materials.

Interested in applying? Graduate students from fields including Mechanical Engineering, Systems Engineering, Urban Planning, Architecture, and Landscape Architecture are invited to apply. We typically hire students at the beginning of each semester and at the beginning of the summer. Feel free to reach out to Linda Larsen at lflarsen@illinois.edu to learn more.
