The Eversource Engineering Co-Op Program is designed to deliver students with the opportunity to apply both classroom and prior experience learning to real life application. The program is 6-months in duration and provides everyone an opportunity to gain experience working in assigned engineering areas.
Protection & Controls (P&C) Engineering Group at Eversource is responsible for the design and operation of the devices and systems used to detect abnormal system conditions, such as electrical faults, and take automatic or supervisory control actions to isolate, mitigate, and restore the Transmission and Distribution system.
