FCC Calling for Engineers for its Honors Program

The one-year program helps graduates gain technical and policy development experience

The Federal Communications Commission is searching for engineers for its honors program. 

The Honors Engineer Program is a career-development opportunity to help recent engineering graduates gain technical and public-sector policy development experience. The one-year program is designed to set new employees up for success and position them for continued employment at the commission. 

“Engineers are deployed throughout the FCC,” said FCC Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel in a statement. “From space innovation to new broadcast standards to 6G and beyond, the FCC’s policy portfolio is filled with interesting and challenging engineering work.

“Our Honors Engineer Program is a unique opportunity for the newest engineers to work closely with experienced professionals in this field to ensure that the FCC is best prepared to face the challenges of next-generation communications networks.”

The engineering students in the program will work alongside senior staff on vetting new communications technologies such as 5G, 6G and next-generation TV broadcasting; enabling public safety and homeland security agencies; and developing policies that encourage innovation and investment in new communications technologies.

Interested candidates should apply online by Dec. 2, 2022.
