In 2019 the scholarship is financially supported by: Schneider Electric, Terna S.p.A and IEEE PES.
The PES Scholarship Plus Initiative provides scholarships and real world experience to undergraduates who are interested in power and energy engineering careers. Power and energy engineers work with some of today’s most exciting technologies, developing solutions to problems that affect our lives and lifestyles.
You can apply for the PES Scholarship if are enrolled in your last year of Master Degree with a focus in Power & Energy from an Italian University, you are interested in an Internship within a Company to develop your Master thesis and you are an IEEE student member.
In 2019, the scholarship funds, equal to 2000 euro, will be distributed via bank transfer to the awardees from the IEEE Italy Section at the beginning of the Master Thesis. This year the awardees will have the opportunity to be developing their Master Degree Thesis in Schneider Electric, Terna S.p.A. and another P&E Company in Italy or Europe chosen by the candidate and approved by the Evaluation Board.
The candidates shall be Electrical Engineering Students with sound background and integrative skills and aptitude towards research along with experiences correlating operating technologies with computer science, networks and connectivity (smart city, smart grids, smart buildings, smart manufacturing, etc.) and energy efficiency. Together with the university career CV, any work experience, internships, knowledge of English, familiarity with the use of Computer Systems and the Social Network will be positively evaluated.
You are eligible to apply for the scholarship if you are a student member of IEEE. Consider that, when you join IEEE, you join a community of over 425,000 technology and engineering professionals united by the common desire to continuously learn, interact, collaborate, and innovate. IEEE membership provides you with the resources and opportunities you need to: keep on top of changes in technology; get involved in standards development; network with other professionals in your local area or within a specific technical interest; mentor the next generation of engineers and technologists, and so much more.
