Project and position description

The undergraduate intern will assist a senior PhD Student in Geography in developing lab material for an Energy-focused GIS course to be taught in the department of Energy and Mineral Engineering. Duties include evaluating and modifying existing lab instructions, researching for relevant data and application problems and writing revised instructions. The student is expected to attend biweekly meetings, as well as potentially a few meetings that will be arranged with professionals in the Energy sector.

Desired qualifications

The student should have successfully completed GEOG 363. Priority will be given to students who have also passed (or are taking) GEOG 364 Spatial Analysis or other advanced GIS course. Students with background/interest in Energy are encouraged to apply. This project will require 45-135 hours of work over the course of the semester, and the successful applicant will earn 1-3 credits for the fall term.
