The 2022 Cal Energy Corps undergraduate summer internship program is underway! Hosted by the California Institute for Energy and Environment (CIEE), in partnership with the CITRIS Workforce Innovation Program, the Cal Energy Corps engages top UC Berkeley undergraduate students in the design, development, and delivery of sustainable energy and climate solutions.
All internship placements are challenging, full-time assignments with leading organizations in the private and public sectors, enabling students to gain professional experience working on the technical solutions of social issues in a cohesive learning environment.
This year’s host organizations include Integral Group, Heila Technologies, Sustainable Berkeley Lab, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (LBNL), UC San Francisco (UCSF), and PingThings, with research ranging from post-wildfire hydrologic response to polymer membranes for clean energy technologies.
