Co-op Opportunity for Freshman and Sophomore ME Students

Dear Mechanical Engineering students,

I hope you are all having a good summer. I am forwarding a co-op opportunity at NIST for freshman and sophomore level mechanical engineering students with a minimum GPA of 3.0.

Interested Candidates should email their resumes to Ms. Miryn Alcantara in The Shriver Center at alcantar@umbc.edu by JULY 21, 2006.

Best regards,

Dr. Panos Charalambides

Panos,

Hope the summer is treating you well. I got this request from NIST and was wondering if you could forward it along to the your listserv?

Thank you in advance,
Miryn

The Heat Transfer and Alternative Energy Systems Group at the National Institute of Standards and Technology located in Gaithersburg, MD is recruiting freshman and sophomore level mechanical engineering students with a minimum GPA of 3.0 for their Co-op Program. US Citizens only.

The projects that co-ops may support include:
1. Solar Energy: studies to evaluate and characterize the electrical and thermal performance of solar photovoltaic panels for building-integrated applications
2. Fuel Cells: the development of test procedures to gauge the energy efficiency of fuel cells in building applications
3. Thermal conductivity: thermal conductivity measurements of building materials using as many as five different types of apparatus, including the nation's standard
4. Wireless Sensors: development of wireless sensor networks for monitoring the condition of buildings.
5. Appliance Efficiency: the development of methods for testing and rating air conditioners, heat pumps, and water heaters; occasionally, an interval of lab testing a particular type of appliance is required

Co-ops work closely with project engineers and are primarily tasked with running tests and performing follow-up data analysis. Co-ops help with fabricating, instrumenting, and maintaining test facilities. Co-ops are also called on to do periodic instrument calibrations and computer programming. Responsibilities increase with successive terms, and the significant role played by co-ops in the group is demonstrated by several recent technical publications co- authored by students. The Heat Transfer and Alternative Energy Systems Group seeks to employ 2 to 3 students each semester.

Interested Candidates should email their resumes to Miryn Alcantara in The Shriver Center at alcantar@umbc.edu by JULY 21, 2006
