Login and Search for HEIF Development Team Student Assistants

Description

HEIF is hiring students that will participate on development teams for Fall 2018 and possibly continuing through Spring 2019. Development teams are responsible for writing proposals associated with energy efficiency or other sustainability projects on campus that have been brought forth by students. Development teams generally range from 1-4 students per team and HEIF usually hosts between 2-5 projects per semester. Development teams are expected to take a high-level concept idea as submitted by another student and research all the elements of the project that will inform a “feasibility study” or “schematic design”. This generally entails developing a scope of work for the project, estimating budget, evaluating outreach elements, and calculating energy or other natural resource impacts to the campus. Students gain experience by working with professional mentors and other technical experts at Facilities Management on campus. Candidates must be self-motivated and able to work within deadlines with little direct supervision. The projects for which HEIF is seeking Development team members during Fall 2018 include a solar array feasibility study, exploration of a mini-split heat pump for CCAT, a comparative case study for heating systems at Jenkins Hall including heat pumps, product evaluation for covering the Earth Tub Composter, and a lighting retrofit at the Field House.
