As a MnTAP intern, you will have the opportunity to actually affect change while working full-time at a manufacturing or healthcare facility. This experience not only prepares you for careers after graduation, but also provides you with an opportunity to help a company make changes to reduce pollution, increase energy efficiency, and save money!
One intern tells her story of working with G&K Services to find recycling solutions at their Minneapolis site.
Each summer, MnTAP recruits and hires junior and senior college students who have strong technical backgrounds and leadership abilities to work on waste and energy reduction projects at companies in Minnesota. Typically, up to sixteen projects are funded each year in locations around the state. Each year’s projects are different; they address different challenges within a number of different industries. Therefore, project specifics vary year-to-year.
