NWIRC Encourages Employers to Utilize STEM Manufacturing Internship Program

ERIE – Students are wrapping up their semester before summer break and are in-the-midst of looking for internship opportunities. The NWIRC has a robust database of high-caliber science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) students who are interested in working on a project within manufacturing. However, these candidates will dwindle as they commit to positions in the coming weeks.

If your company has been putting off a project, process improvement, or other initiative, the NWIRC can assist in matching your objectives with the ideal student’s skill-set and work interests. The STEM Manufacturing Internship program has helped companies accelerate technology development and address process and technology- related issues with significant and quantifiable results, such as increased productivity and decreased costs.

The NWIRC also can assess your needs and scope a project for you, to include developing a job description. The program saves companies time in the selection process, and also has an option for payroll management to reduce resources required for maintaining the intern as a short-term employee.
