Through two semesters of interning with the Center, I was able to learn more about the role of geospatial analyses in solar development while working with brilliant, passionate people every day.

After graduation, I will be pursuing a Fulbright Grant in Santiago, Chile, studying distributed solar energy generation--an opportunity that has certainly been made possible by my time with CCGT.

Being a part of CCGT has not only taught me everything I need to know about GIS and more, it has changed the way I think and work. I am now at a level of digital fluency and preparedness for the modern job market that I never thought possible, and the skills I have learned are universal.

I am proud to say that I will be working as an intern for NASA this summer, putting my skills to good use, and CCGT is what made it possible.

CCGT exposed me to the varied and interesting capabilities of GIS. The technical know how I have gained during my internship with CCGT has influenced my academic direction.


I am grateful for the experience and opportunities that CCGT has made possible, both an Esri assistantship and the USAID internship. My CCGT internship has been very important.

I had the pleasure of interning with the US Agency for International Development as a Youth Mappers Virtual Intern, all thanks to CCGT. I had not even imagined an opportunity like that existed until CCGT informed the Clemson Mappers team. CCGT was very helpful in making sure I started off well since some software and concepts were new to me.

As someone who always had an interest in geography, this was a very enjoyable and rewarding experience for me.
