What people say about the program . . .
"MidAmerican Energy Company has benefited and
continues to benefit from the talented and well-trained
students from SCC, specifically the Energy Generation
Operations program. We look forward to the continued
relationship and enjoy the internship program as well as
being able to meet with students frequently as a part of the
Career Development Course."
Scott DeRosier
Unit Manager, Operations and Maintenance
Walter Scott Energy Center, MidAmerican Energy Company
"The partnership between Nebraska Public Power
District and the Energy Generation Operations program at
SCC helps provide our organization with a steady pipeline
of homegrown talent. It's a win-win situation. On-site job
shadowing opportunities at our generation facilities help
expose the students to the practical application of what
they're learning in their classes, and NPPD benefits by
establishing relationships early on in the education process.
Other employers are envious of the quality of future
employees that NPPD is getting from this program."
