Complex problems. Big questions. Investigation and inquiry. In-depth research. Long-term solutions. Innovation and creativity.

The Technology, Engineering, and Physical Sciences (TEPS) Career Community covers a broad range of career paths and opportunities, but all of them will in some way interact with the themes of problem solving and scientific inquiry. Those involved in the TEPS community are people who are passionate about using their knowledge, skills, and talents to grapple with these themes and work their way toward real-world solutions.

What are some of the real-world topics in need of exploration and solutions in this area? Climate change. Internet of Things. Mars missions. Self-driving cars. Data security. STEM education. Clean energy. These are some of the “breaking news” trends that have emerged over the past several years. With the rapid development of technology and the exponential growth of innovative industries in need of problem solvers, we will continue to see these topics and more evolve as solutions are found and new questions are asked. Individuals in a variety of roles are needed to work on solutions to these questions.

In a traditional sense, the TEPS career community offers opportunities that align with the following academic fields: astronomy and astrophysics, chemistry, computer science, environmental studies, engineering, geosciences, math, and physics. However, since major does not necessarily equal career, anyone with an interest in these academic fields or industry areas can find a segment of their own career journey within the TEPS community.

TEPS opportunities can be found in every sector: academia, government, for-profit industries, and nonprofit industries. Whether you are interested in working in a lab, a start-up, government offices, a classroom, an established corporation, somewhere in-between, or somewhere beyond, you can find opportunities as an analyst, designer, developer, educator, engineer, laboratory technician, policy analyst, programmer, project manager, research scientist, science writer, teacher, and more.  

You are welcome to explore the Technology, Engineering, and Physical Sciences career community and learn more about how your interest areas can connect to real-world opportunities.

“Chuyue took a summer internship with our Asset Sustainability Group and worked on setting up and evaluating Fault Detection and Diagnostic (FDD) Rules within Ameresco’s Building Dynamics framework. Ameresco had been collecting data from the Wellesley building automation system and Sun worked on establishing the applicable fault detection and diagnostic rules. The final result was a report that could be run across numerous air handling units (across different buildings) for about 20+ FDD rules for a given period to identify when and how frequently the faults occurred.”

Paulson Ecology of Place Summer Internship Program

The Paulson Ecology of Place Initiative inspires and prepares Wellesley women across disciplines to value sense of place and connection to nature in order to enrich their academic experience, personal well-being, and community, so that they make a positive difference in their local and global communities.
