Applicants Sought for FCC Honors Engineer Program – 12/5 Deadline

The FCC is looking for recent electrical engineering graduates (or those scheduled to graduate this December) to apply to its Honors Engineer program. 

According to the ARRL Letter, participants may, among other things, receive training to perform "propagation analysis of terrestrial, satellite and/or airborne systems or evaluating the emission characteristics of various transmitters to validate the co-existence with neighboring systems. Projects may also involve various computer software engineering and scientific applications."

 FCC Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel says the program provides “a unique opportunity for the newest engineers to work closely with experienced professionals in this field” and that participants will be “deployed throughout the FCC … from space innovation to new broadcast standards to 6G and beyond.”

The one-year developmental
program may lead to a term or permanent appointment. Up to 175 applications will be accepted, with a deadline of December 2.
