Innovative Weather at UW-Milwaukee is excited to announce openings in our professional internship program available to qualified students. This internship is open to intended and declared Atmospheric Science undergraduates at all levels of study, including freshmen and sophomores, as well as all Atmospheric Science graduate students.

Innovative Weather is a 24/7 operational forecast internship that serves partners from across the Midwest including Summerfest, WUWM, We Energies, Lake Express, Alliant Energies and several others. IW provides weather risk-assessment and decision-support services, which allow our partners to make timely and cost effective decisions for the well being of their staff and operation as well as the customers they serve. Students acquire forecasting skills and experience through our training program and then are invited to participate as full paid staff in the program as they continue to develop personal and professional skills that will be foundational for them in all phases of their lives and future careers.
