Purpose of the Internship Programme
The South Africa Wind Energy Association (SAWEA) intends implementing Wind Industry Internship Programme (WIIP) on an annual basis. The WIIP is to provide young professionals who have recently completed a degree (or those undertaking graduate programmes) with the opportunity to gain practical work experience in line with their studies or interests, and expose them to works related to sustainable energy solutions.
