I was an intern with the Global Energy Network Institute (GENI) in the summer months of year 2007. The internship program between GENI and SDSU/ISC (International Student Center) was established in the early 2000s for the purpose of providing international students at SDSU with an opportunity to engage in study and research activities in a non-university setting. I am very happy that I was selected for the program. GENI is a non-profit organization headquartered in San Diego. The purpose of this organization is to promote worldwide energy conservation and the use of renewable resource for energy generations
I was given a specific project to work on for the entire internship period. The subject of my project was on "Rural Electrification, Human Development and Renewable Energy Potential of China". My work as an intern included studying the particular paper (titled above), verifying data and translated it into to Chinese. My mentor/supervisor was Mr. Peter Meisen, President and Founder of GENI. Mr. Meisen has an open-door policy with interns, and I could see him whenever he was available. I am very pleased ISC/SDSU and GENI offered me this internship opportunity. It was a very beneficial, satisfying and pleasant experience. During the summer months, GENI offered many internship positions to college students worldwide. It was a wonderful to be able to meet many international students. The working atmosphere at GENI is intellectual and friendly.
