The MIT Energy club facilitates professional, educational, and social activities throughout the year for our members. Listed below are examples of some ways that members can participate, stay engaged and benefit from club membership.
We publish a fortnightly newsletter that keeps our members up to date on upcoming events, internship & full-time employment opportunities and other community news. Current students can sign up for the newsletter by joining the club using the "Join the Club" link above.
The club organizes educational seminars, hosted by faculty, industry veterans and experienced students, with the dual aims of helping industry-switchers get up the curve faster, and provide thought-provoking discussions for those who are simply curious about the energy sector and climate & sustainability topics.
The club provides targeted support for students looking to secure internships or full-time roles in the energy sector, with events (e.g. Energy Careers 101), tactical guidance (e.g. Resume Reviews), industry panels and other activities.
The club assists students with their recruiting processes via its career track, which includes resume reviews and company events. We also organize industry panels and other educational events aimed at bolstering our members' knowledge of various energy sectors.
The club plans several 'treks' each year, giving members the opportunity to visit business in the energy sector, and meet with leaders within these businesses. While formats vary from year to year, treks typically have a geographical focus (e.g. a trek to meet with businesses located in San Francisco) or a sub-sector focus (e.g. a trek to meet with major renewables developers in the Boston area). These events have proven to be invaluable opportunities for students to learn about the business models and strategic priorities of these companies, and meet with experienced energy professionals.
The club hosts happy hours and many fun opportunities to meet with alumni, fellow students, and industry practitioners across the energy community at MIT and the greater Boston area.
