    Important Note: If you are selected for the internship, please inform Mr. Honor IMMEDIATELY via email at:


    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.

    Engineering Pipeline Program (EPP)

    Application Process

  • Engineering Pipeline Program

  • When National Grid thinks about the future, we

    think of innovation, especially in the area of energy

    conservation. We are passionate about the issue

    of climate change. We are committed to playing a

    large role in the transition to a low carbon economy

    and we need your help to get it done.

    Fewer students are becoming engineers

    despite the importance of engineers in

    our society.

    At National Grid, without the help of

    engineers, we could not:

    Understand how to be more energy


    Discover how to reduce our

    energy use

    Determine where our energy will

    come from in the next century

    Put simply, we depend on engineers

    as creative problem solvers who help

    shape the future. And we’re looking to

    you to become engineers and part of

    our future workforce.

    What you will get out of this program

    National Grid’s Engineering Pipeline

    Program offers high school and college

    students the chance to learn more

    about National Grid and the engineering

    profession as a whole through a

    structured six-year program.

    It’s a chance to translate your interest

    in science, technology, engineering or

    mathematics into a future career of

    your choice.

    As a member of the Pipeline program,

    you 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 opportunities for

    paid internships, real life engineers

    as mentors, with job shadowing

    to experience a “day in the life of”,

    networking with fellow program

    participants and even the chance

    to advise younger members

    of the program as you move along

    the “Pipeline”.

    The end result could be a future career

    with National Grid once you graduate

    from college.
