The Engineering Pipeline Program (EPP) is a developmental
program designed to address the growing engineering talent
gap in the US. It is aimed to inspire promising high school
students to pursue an education and career in engineering.
Each year, only 15 of the highest caliber students from each
region (NE, DNY, UNY) are accepted into EPP. These
Scholars then participate in the Intro to Engineering Academy and the Future of Engineering Academy at
our Learning Centers and various Engineering Job Shadows throughout our businesses.
During the first two years, selected
candidates will take part in two one-week
summer programs, which include
classroom and hands-on activities on the
following topics: introduction to the
energy industry, natural gas operations,
electric power systems, the future of energy, gas engineering, electric engineering, sustainable energy,
along with panel discussions with National Grid engineers regarding their education, interests and career.
As a member of the Pipeline program, students will be given the opportunity to gain exposure to the
engineering industry through instruction, in and out of the classroom, site visits, research and projects.
Highlights include interacting with real life engineers as mentors, networking with fellow program
participants, participating in job shadowing to experience a “day in the life of”, and opportunities for paid
internships. The end result could be a future career with National Grid once students graduate from college.
As mentioned above, the program is open to students that are currently high school juniors and are on track
to complete their junior year by June 2018.
For 2018, the Year 1 “Intro to Engineering Academy” is scheduled to be held from July 9th – 13th, 2018 at
National Grid’s Learning Centers (Melville, NY, Syracuse, NY, Worcester, MA).
After completing Years 1 and 2 of the program, students will be eligible for consideration of National Grid
Summer Internship opportunities.
