"The program has been a terrific summertime experience for Kyle and Alan, and we hope to continue it for other students in future years," added Walsh. "Technology-focused organiza
tions like NYSTEC are always looking for talented engineers, so our chief goal is motivate students so they'll continue to pursue engineering careers."
NYSTEC plans to involve future interns in a variety of otherprojectsfocused on technology and research. Interns in the program are paid for their work. Eligible students must be strong academic achievers who major in electrical engineering or computer science and are currently enrolled in an accredited college or university at the freshmen through graduate levels.
