An exciting opportunity for a summer job where you get to use your skills in an international renewable energy project.
Multiconsult will organise an international summer project for students in energy related studies in the summer of 2016.
Multiconsult is one of the largest consulting firms in Norway working with both national and international hydropower. About 50 percent of our projects are outside of Norway, mainly in southern Africa, the Himalayan region and South-East Europe. This gives younger employees an opportunity for an international career with us. One possibility is through our international exchange program, which includes one year of work abroad with our partner in Nepal.
For the summer project 2016, the students will carry out a hydropower related study for a client in a country where we have projects. The team composition should be interdisciplinary in order to solve tasks related to such a study. It is expected that the students will put in significant effort during the project. The project is likely to be an integrated hydropower and solar power plant project and we are looking for students with background from these two technologies.
The project is divided into the following phases:
Phase 1: Start-up period
Phase 2: Field survey and data collection
Phase 3: Preparation of final report
The students will get support from relevant experts during the project. The final delivery is required to be of a high standard. All documentation must be written in English.
Third and fourth year students within hydropower, solar and energy related studies (including structural engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, hydrology, meteorology, energy planning, geotechnical engineering, geology, environment, social sciences, economics and management)
Participants will be assigned roles within the team based on qualifications and prior experience. One of the participants will take the role as Project Manager, and applicants are asked to specify whether they are interested in taking a leadership role within the team.
Personal Qualities sought:
- Creative and professionally engaged in their subject of study
- Able to work independently and use their initiative
- Enthusiasm and personal drive
- A sense of responsibility
- Taking pride in their work and the associated results
- Must thrive on technical challenges
- Strong academic results

The summer project is paid as a standard summer job in Multiconsult and all expenses associated with the field assignment will be covered.
