New York Power Authority’s (NYPA) intern program provides top college students with the opportunity to gain broad experience working for the nation’s largest public power organization.
I chose my major because I enjoy solving problems. Being able to find a solution to a problem/project that you have worked on for a long time feels very rewarding.
I am most interested in learning about the power industry while being here at NYPA because this is a field that I plan to focus on during my studies. A project that I will be involved with is called the PV-20 Submarine Cable Replacement in which various kinds of people will be involved with to replace cables that are at risk to disrupting services in parts of New York and Vermont.
A few skills that I plan to sharpen are related to team work and communication because they are very vital skills to have in every working environment. I will create value while interning at NYPA by learning as much as I can from my mentors about the project that we will be working on and by interacting with various kinds of people throughout the project to learn about their roles on the project.
My best friend would describe me as hardworking because I put a lot of effort in everything that I do.
I chose to major in Systems Engineering because I enjoy the key concepts of defining a system and its objectives as well as data analysis of the system.
I really look forward in learning how to use Maximo effectively for asset management and hope to get involved with projects involving Maximo as well as actually seeing the assets in person at NYPA’s sites.
I am hoping to sharpen my professional skills, communication, business knowledge, as well as my data analysis skills and using Maximo.
My best friend would describe me as a hard-working, positive guy who loves to laugh and learn.
