Students are an integral part of our Institute. We are always interested in working with inspired undergraduate and graduate students with an interest in energy. Working at the EEI, students have the opportunity to conduct research, publish academic work, and contribute to important and relevant projects that are advancing the energy sector in a cost-effective and environmentally sustainable way. Current opportunities for students to get involved include:

Emerging Energy Professionals Program

A year-long program designed to train UC Davis undergraduate and graduate students in the skills and thinking essential to pursuing professional careers in energy.

Energy Career Fair

Each January, we host an Energy Career Fair in partnership with the UC Davis Internship and Career Center. This Fair, provides an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate UC Davis students to connect with representatives from energy-related companies in the government, private, and non-profit sectors.

UC Davis Student Energy Chapter

Building a community of student energy leaders to share cross-disciplinary knowledge about the energy system and take action to accelerate the transition to a resilient, decarbonized, and equitable energy future.


We often have internships available in a range of areas, including research, outreach, and project management.
