Washington Internships for Students of Engineering (WISE)

Connecting Engineers & Scientists with Public Policy Since 1980


Each year, IEEE selects three outstanding engineering student members to participate in the nine-week WISE program in Washington, D.C.  Students discover how government officials make decisions on complex technological issues, while also learning how engineers and scientists can contribute to legislative process and regulatory decision-making.


The WISE Program is ranked as one of the best Internship opportunities in the U.S. by the Princeton Review.


IEEE-USA, IEEE Life Members, and IEEE Technical Activities Board collectively support IEEE’s participation in the annual WISE program. For more information on the program and application forms, please visit: http://www.wise-intern.org
