A crash course in engineering smart buildings and beyond
Each summer we launch TEECOMuniversity, an intense eight-week internship program with instructor-led classroom-style sessions teaching the fundamentals of the low-voltage engineering systems that power smart buildings, including telecommunication, audiovisual, and security. Classes are also offered in business operations and soft skills, including marketing, BD, finance, research, and presentation/communication skills.
Get paid to learn
At TEECOMuniversity, you can expect daily courses provided by top industry talent; weekly quizzes and exams; hands-on learning in AutoCAD and Revit; field trips to project sites; a welcome packet including your schedule, a loaner laptop, and TEECOM swag; and to experience TEECOM culture, where we work hard, give back, and have fun!
See your designs come to life
The program offers hands-on learning for Revit, as well as field trips to project sites where interns observe first-hand the systems they are designing. By completing the design for an entire floor of a project in Revit, interns gain real-world engineering skills that they’ll use throughout their studies and future career. Students interview mock clients, set scope and goals, and present their final projects for critique.
Create a clear career path
TEECOMuniversity positions graduates for positions in the low-voltage design industry straight out of the gate. In fact, we have brought a few TEECOMuniversity alumni on as full-time staff after they graduate! Every intern receives a certificate upon course completion, as well as a letter of recommendation from TEECOM leadership. You’ll get to know all the major players in each of our service verticals, and have opportunities for networking. We want you to succeed!
Working on a project (or practically doing something) is a far more intensive, and effective, method of learning than taking classes or reading books. — Ken Kurihara, UC Berkeley. B.S. Mechanical Engineering
I am already telling my peers about this opportunity and how they should strive for a position! — Winnie He, Cal Poly SLO, B.S. Architectural Engineering
I cannot express how thankful I am for all of the people who helped make this internship great. Everyone was so nice and welcoming, and everyone seemed so genuinely excited to teach us. — Jack Peck-Kriss, Cal Poly SLO, B.S. Mechanical Engineering
