The 2015 Washington Internships for Students of Engineering (WISE) has selected 14 interns to “spend nine weeks in Washington, D.C., learning about the public policy process, including how government officials make decisions on complex technological issues and how engineers can contribute to legislative and regulatory public policy decisions. The WISE Program is ranked as one of the best Internship opportunities in the U.S.” Three of this year’s interns are Tau Bates. They are:

1. Devin J. Cornell – (MO B 2015) electrical engineering at the Missouri Univ. of Science & Tech.
2. Noah B. Rauschkolb – (NY A 2015) mechanical engineering at Columbia University
3. Jami Summey-Rice – (TX E 2017) chemical engineering at the University of Houston (to be initiated April 19)
