Power Practicum

Every year, Power Education Partnership (PEP) members are given the opportunity to host undergraduates from Washington State University. This weeklong visit during spring break is called the Power Practicum. Undergraduates are exposed to real-world engineering and learn from engineering teams about their career experiences.  In 2023, we had 34 students with 12 organizations throughout Western and Eastern Washington and Portland, Oregon! We are so proud to be able to offer the best of our undergraduates to PEP members during Practicum.
