ASSET Engineering Internships Deliver Real-World Experience in the Power Industry
ASSET Engineering, a leading power system engineering firm, proudly announces the successful completion of its summer internship program. Since 2000, the firm has built a reputation for providing electrical engineering expertise to utilities, independent power producers, and large industrial and institutional power users. The internship program exemplifies the company’s commitment to nurturing the next generation of power professionals.
Over the summer, ASSET accepted three interns into its ranks: two electrical engineering interns, and one marketing and administrative intern. Our interns were carefully selected based on their academic achievements, passion for the power industry, and eagerness to learn and grow in a dynamic professional environment. Our engineering interns worked closely with engineers on projects that included the development of optimized electrical designs, power system studies, and much more. The Marketing and Administrative Intern participated in marketing initiatives and performed office management tasks, where this exposure gave her an understanding of the broader landscape and critical role that effective communication plays in operational success. Meet our interns, below!
Will McInnis, a student from Mississippi State University, joined ASSET for this year’s internship experience as an Electrical Engineering Intern, where he gained valuable exposure to SKM software that is used for power system studies and analysis. Working closely with one of our Project Engineers, Will completed a power system study for one of our solar developer clients that included reactive load flow analysis, short-circuit analysis, arc flash, and more.
Boykin Brister, a senior from Mississippi State University, also joined our Internship Program as an Electrical Engineering Intern. He assisted our engineers on various projects including physical substation design, protection and control engineering, and power system studies. Collaborating with a Project Engineer, Boykin developed the wiring diagrams for a relay panel replacement project for a manufacturing client located in Florida.
Molly Albritton, an upcoming freshman to Mississippi State University, assisted the business development and engineering administration teams over the summer. Working alongside the Marketing and Client Relations Manager, she designed social media campaigns, helped maintain our customer relationship management database using Salesforce, wrote press releases, reviewed our digital marketing analytics, and more.
“Throughout the summer, our intern’s enthusiasm and dedication were evident and ASSET is proud to have contributed to their professional growth and experience,” says Michael Albritton, PE, Manager of Electrical Engineers. “By working alongside our industry experts and contributing to real projects, I believe that they will go on to make significant contributions to the field.”
