Transmission Engineering offers qualified students, in accredited engineering programs leading to a Bachelor of Science Degree, the opportunity to work in various areas of engineering on a rotational basis as part of the engineering cooperative program. Transmission Engineering manages the design, assessment and analysis of substations and transmission facilities throughout the Duke Energy service area. This department is also responsible for any upgrades to these facilities to ensure safe and reliable operation of the assets. Engineering co-ops will work alongside staff engineers who manage equipment reliability and perform analysis and design of structures, systems and components within Duke Energy’s transmission system. Rotational positions are available in Transmission Line Engineering, Protection & Controls Engineering, System Standards, Substation Engineering, Asset Management, Transmission Planning, Siting Permitting & Engagement and Project Management. Typical job responsibilities include:
CAD use for conceptual and final detail designs and as-builts
Regulatory permitting support (ex: erosion control, storm water management)
SPCC Plan (Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure) modification and creation
Physical substation design (foundations, structures, electrical connections and ratings, equipment specifications, bills-of-material, CAD work)
Relay programming and wiring diagram design for microprocessor based relays and protection systems
Transmission system studies and analyses to support NERC Planning Standards and day-to-day operations of the bulk electric power system
Equipment monitoring and data collection and analysis for trending and assessment
Transmission line design of structure specification and placement as well as conductor sag and tension
Discrete project involvement and assistance to senior engineers and technologists or to project managers.
This co-op position is open for students pursuing degrees in undergraduate studies in Civil Engineering from an ABET-accredited program. In addition to working within your discipline, you may be asked to work across a multi-engineering discipline platform.
This co-op position will be based in our Carolinas East region of Duke Energy Progress and may require travel to various facilities within the area.
