WET Center Works

We want to empower students with experience by leveraging the region’s resources to support clean energy innovation and commercialization! Our primary focus is to develop and implement an experiential, hands-on-learning program that exposes undergraduate students to career opportunities in the ag-tech or climate/energy-focused industries. 

We will be working with startup companies who are a part of or entering the ag-tech, climate-tech or energy space. The WET Center Works program will provide learning opportunities to undergraduates through paid, project-based work experience that pairs students with startup companies. Our mission is simple: to support and cultivate high-growth water, clean energy and ag-technology ventures, foster business growth in California's Central Valley, and empower students to be part of the next generation of growth and change.
