Powel Summer Internship 2017
As autumn creeps up on us, our thoughts turn not to Christmas, but to summer, as Powel announces details of their popular summer internship for next year.
If you want to work with academic related issues whilst becoming familiar with Powel as a company and the industries the company works with, this might just be the opportunity for you.
Powel works to create value for their customers through business-critical software. The employees’ skills, ideas and personality are invaluable.
Each individual’s effort make a difference
The company carries this philosophy when it comes to the summer internships, which gives students the chance to practise their skills through working on real and relevant projects within one of the business units.
In the summer of 2016, Powel had students from a wide variety of background working for the company. They were second, third and fourth years students from areas of study ranging from nanotechnology, industrial design, cybernetics, energy and more. Several students were also back for their second summer internship with the company.
They all worked in small teams on highly relevant projects and were mentored throughout by Powel employees.
As Powel is an international company, much internal communication is done in English, including the internship presentations.
The internship will last for a total of six weeks with a break half-way through the program and you will be working from Powel’s head office in Trondheim, Norway.
The interns will receive mentoring from Powel employees while working together in small teams within the overarching theme of “Community Connected”, which is also the name of Powel’s user conference this year.
The company is seeing more and more synergies between the different work sectors and through innovative technologies, the internet of things, and the move towards smarter living, Powel sees a Community Connected.
At the end of the six weeks, you will see how all the projects fit together under the main topic.
Some students will be assigned the role of project managers for the total project. If you think that sounds interesting, please notify the company in your application.
