UW Student Selected for Washington, D.C., Internship
May 24, 2013 — Emily Beagle of Sheridan, a University of Wyoming graduate student in mechanical engineering, will serve a nine-week internship in Washington, D.C., this summer.
She was selected by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) to the 2013 Washington Internships for Students of Engineering (WISE) program.
Beagle will work with government representatives on important issues involving technology. Her interests include renewable energy, alternative energy policy, and environmental politics and law.
“Emily should find a receptive audience on Capitol Hill at a time when public policy officials are expanding the dialogue about the role of renewable energy in the nation’s energy future,” says Marc W. Goldsmith, ASME president.
The WISE program, founded in 1980 through a collaboration of engineering societies including ASME, aims to educate future leaders of the engineering profession on public policy processes and to encourage technical input in legislative decision making.
