The U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has announced that it is now accepting applications for its Honors Engineer Program.
Initiated in 2018, the one-year development program gives selected candidates an opportunity to work with FCC personnel on cutting-edge issues in the communications and high-tech arenas, including 5G communications technology, the national deployment of broadband services, and communications technologies intended to improve access to those with disabilities. Other areas of potential focus include communications technologies critical to public safety, homeland security, healthcare, energy, education and transportation.
In addition, those selected to participate in the Honors Engineer Program will be eligible for continued employment at the agency.
