DAVIE, Fla., July 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- SRT Group (SRT), a provider of best-in-class communications technology for customers in the government, commercial and law enforcement sectors, announces the participants in its summer 2015 internship program.
SRT's robust internship program – one of the largest for small or medium size companies in south Florida – demonstrates the company's continued commitment to supporting STEM (science, technology, education, mathematics) education in the state.
"At SRT, we seek interns who are excited about our work and passionate about developing the next communications technologies," said Rick Lund, founder and chairman of SRT Group.
"Throughout the program they are given opportunities to demonstrate their skills and explore new areas of expertise, and we recognize their contributions to our success. But this is also our way to help develop the next generation of engineering talent in south Florida. Our company is growing rapidly, and we need top tier local expertise to fill our growing need for talent."
Recruited from Florida's top high schools and universities, interns participate in a range of activities, including product development, applications, embedded software, autonomous vehicles, green technologies, energy efficiency, hardware and technical services, finance and more.
"We create an environment that truly empowers our interns," said John Russell, Chief Marketing Officer for SRT Group. "They get to work alongside a world-class team of professionals that are among the very best in the industry. Our hope is this hands-on exposure to helping us develop disruptive, cutting-edge technologies inspires them to continue their engineering education and to stay here once they graduate."
