The Fluid Power Scholars Program is a collaborative effort between the Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power (CCEFP) and companies in the fluid power industry who are corporate members of the CCEFP. This highly selective summer program identifies and connects the very best undergraduate engineering students across the United States to the fluid power industry with the purpose of training the next-generation of fluid power leaders. Industry partners who will host 2011 summer interns are: Caterpillar, John Deere, Deltrol Fluid Products, Enfield Technologies, Parker Hannifin Corporation, Sun Hydraulics, and HUSCO International and more.
This is a highly competitive program, open to undergraduates who have successfully completed at least two years in an accredited engineering program in the United States. The Scholars program begins with an intensive three-day instructional program in fluid power, taught at the Fluid Power Institute at the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE), and follows with internships in the fluid power industry. The 2011 Fluid Power short course at MSOE will be held early June 2011. Students should expect to spend 10-11 weeks as a participant in this program. Up to ten undergraduate students will be selected as Fluid Power Scholars by a committee of faculty and industry representatives. In addition to their paid internships, scholars will receive stipends for travel and living expenses associated with their work at MSOE.
