FEV Inc. – GSU – Engine Combustion Laboratory – Joint Internship for Master Students

FEV is offering challenging internships in the field of light-duty diesel powertrain. This internship is designed for Masters of Science candidates in collaboration with Dr. Valentin Soloiu, the Distinguished Allen E Paulson Chair in Georgia Southern University. At FEV, engineering intern will be part of a team and receives project tasks and responsibilities within a group, which are mentored and supervised by an experienced project engineer. The tasks include but are not limited to engine dynamometer testing of diesel engines, vehicle testing for emissions and performance and associated data handling, processing and presenting combustion and performance data, engine and aftertreatment control strategy development, rapid control prototyping using MATLAB/Simulink/C environments and participate in internal FEV training and experience sharing activities. Because of the complexity of the tasks encountered in the daily job, FEV prefers internship duration of min 9 months to 1 year. Interested candidates can submit resumes and questions to the contact information listed below.

National Science Foundation: Research Experience for Undergraduates

“Undergraduate Research in Green Engineered New Transportation Technologies (URGENTT)”

The Allen E. Paulson Research Laboratory for Renewable Energy and Engines at Georgia Southern University will offer summer-term interdisciplinary research experiences for engineering undergraduate students in the field of Renewable Energy and Biofuels Combustion in Internal Combustion Engines (ICE). REU students will be trained to use the AEP Laboratory’s state-of-the-art equipment. A ~$1.5M investment in applied equipment (high-speed data acquisition and gas analysis systems, engines, dynamometers) secured with NSF, DOE, EPA, and ORNL research grants.

Features of the program: The research problem requires multidisciplinary strategies contributed by 8 faculty from 5 departments & 3 colleges of the university. The program will provide stipends to 10 students from various universities, for 10 weeks each summer from 2014 to 2016. In consultation with a faculty mentor, they will develop an individual research project, delineating their expected contribution to their as-signed team. Participants will attend lectures, seminars, work-shops, and labs to develop their knowledge in, renewable energy, engines, research methods, and technical writing. Read More…
