Next Gen: WISE Internship and Student Paper Competition Deadlines

WISE Internship Deadline Is Dec. 31

Undergraduate engineering students are invited to apply to be a part of the Washington Internships for Students of Engineering. The WISE program is ranked as one of the best internship opportunities in the United States by the Princeton Review.

ASTM International sponsors an intern in the WISE program, a nine-week summer session for 12 to 15 engineering students entering their final year of undergraduate work. WISE interns stay in Washington, D.C., and learn how government decisions are made on technological issues, as well as how engineers can contribute to legislative and public policy decisions.

ANSI Announces 2019 Student Paper Competition

The American National Standards Institute and its Committee on Education have announced its 2019 Student Paper Competition. To help foster greater awareness about the importance of standardization, the paper competition asks students to answer, “How do standards help mitigate disaster?”

Papers should consider how standards have contributed to the mitigation, prevention, relief, or recovery of various disasters. Authors can pick a real-life disaster and describe standards that helped get things back on track, as well as potential standards that could have provided additional assistance. Students can also make up a disaster scenario. In either case, specific standards should be referenced. Papers should include references to multiple types of standards and standard developing organizations.

For submission criteria, go to the ANSI 2019 Student Paper Competition flyer at Documents/Education and Training/Committee on Education/2019 Student Paper Competition Flyer.pdf. All entries must be submitted by 5:00 p.m. ET, on April 30, 2019, to Winning papers will be announced in June 2019.
