Student Opportunities

Cal Energy Corps

The Cal Energy Corps was an undergraduate summer internship program engaging top UC Berkeley undergraduate students in the design, development and delivery of sustainable energy and climate solutions around the world. After 11 years of providing students summer internships with energy-related companies and national labs, the Cal Energy Corps will merge with the Climate and Energy track of the CITRIS Workforce Innovation Program beginning December 2022. 

While continuing to provide real-world experience to undergraduate students in the design, development and delivery of sustainable energy and climate solutions, the program will be expanded to allow undergraduates from all majors at UC Berkeley, UC Davis, UC Merced and UC Santa Cruz to apply for placements in one of five areas of emerging IT innovation important to the state of California: aviation, climate and energy, digital health, robotics and semiconductors.

Students will:

  • Earn $25 per hour for eight weeks, 30 hours per week
  • Participate in concurrent weekly workshops to gain technical, communication and leadership skills
  • Network with peers and industry professionals through in-person meet-ups, a closing symposium and dedicated co-working spaces on each UC campus
