Engineering Co-op Program/Opportunities:  At SEA, we thrive in furthering the knowledge and development of college students. An SEA Energy Engineering Intern/Co-op (EEI) supports Energy Engineers, Sr. Energy Engineers &/or the  Director of Energy Engineering by performing engineering analysis needed for determining the applicability  and feasibility of energy efficiency retrofits &/or water conservation retrofits to commercial, institutional &/or industrial facilities of virtually all sizes and types. Technology involved could potentially include any of the following:

  • Building Energy Modeling
  • Lighting sources & automated controls
  • Heating, ventilating & air conditioning systems
  • Building envelope construction components
  • Computerized direct digital control systems & software programs
  • Renewable energy technologies such as photovoltaic’s, wind turbines, methane recovery, biomass & geothermal



Such energy engineering analysis will normally be performed within SEA’s corporate headquarters in Birmingham, Alabama. However, periodically, it will be necessary for an EEI to travel with one or more SEA Energy Engineers to the site of SEA’s client for surveying of existing facilities and related on-site conditions. Most often, client sites will be U.S. military installations or similar campuses. Work assignments and travel vary depending on project availability. This position involves at least two (2), preferably three (3) consecutive semesters. To be eligible for the co-op program a student must meet a 3.0 cumulative GPA in Mechanical or Electrical Engineering. We offer our co-ops:


  • Competitive compensation
  • Monthly living/utility allowance
  • Paid Holidays
  • Mileage Reimbursement
  • Possible world-wide travel
