UVM CEMS Spire - April 2013

UVM CEMS and the workforce development nonprofit Vermont HITEC have announced the creation of a new partnership designed to expand internship and employment opportunities for UVM students in engineering, computer science, mathematics and statistics.

In collaboration with UVM's Career Services as well as other workforce agencies in the state, CEMS and Vermont HITEC will work to provide students with a wider array of internship and cooperative-learning opportunities with Vermont businesses. The partnership will link as well with the Vermont Technology Council Internship Program.

The partnership was forged by Dr. Bernard "Chip" Cole, Interim Dean of UVM-CEMS and Gerry Ghazi, President of Vermont HITEC, and was launched after a six month pilot of the program. During the pilot phase, over a dozen UVM-CEMS students took part in summer and fall internships with a number of Vermont companies including CVSAS, Semi-Probe, Smart Resource Institute, AllEarth Renewables, EnSave, the Compass School, and ArtsRiot. continued
