Want to help the planet and save your employer money? Sign up for the internship and co-op Carbon Challenge.
Students who will be interning or co-oping this summer have the opportunity to be part of a program to identify ways to help employers have more efficient processes. Aside from the value students offer through their regular duties, they will partner with the employer to identify and execute a plan to reduce the company or organization's carbon emissions.
Participants will be guided by professors Kim Cobb from the College of Sciences and Beril Toktay from the Scheller College of Business. Past partner companies include BP, 3M, and RBC Bearings.
The deadline to sign up is Monday, May 15. Email Kjersti.Lukens@scheller.gatech.edu for more information or to sign up. A kickoff meeting will take place Monday, May 22, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Room 223, Scheller College of Business.
