What Our Interns Say

I did a summer internship at the FOSS PVLab and really enjoyed my time there. The project was fascinating, the other people around the office and lab were lovely, and it was great being in an environment where I was able to socialise and make friends with the other like-minded interns. I think anyone aiming to learn more about the intersection of photovoltaics with sustainable energy would get a lot out of being involved with this research group.

I worked at FOSS Research Centre as an intern and had an amazing learning experience regarding photovoltaic systems. FOSS has a very welcoming workplace environment and has treated me like family over the course of my internship. I was surrounded by students and researchers who were pleased to help me out when I had a question. I made many friends here, and I would highly recommend working at
FOSS if given the opportunity.

Undergraduate Student in Electrical Engineering, TEXAS A&M University, USA

I have been collaborating and studying at Photovoltaic Technology Laboratory of FOSS Research Centre and I have to say that it was a really good experience. There are really good researchers there. I learnt a lot about photovoltaic technology and this experience helped me with my Thesis. I also felt part of the group and I met wonderful people there. I really appreciate their help and I wanted to take the time to thank you. It is highly recommended.
