Engineer Development Program

The ERCOT Engineer Development Program (EDP) is a 12-16 month self-paced program geared toward entry-level engineers looking to start a career in the power industry. Through the program, an EDP Engineer receives one-on-one mentoring, specialized training, and exposure to the work performed by each of the engineering groups at ERCOT. This allows engineers to develop the fundamental skills necessary to reach their full potential while gaining an understanding of the types of engineering work ERCOT has to offer. EDP management supports each EDP Engineer each step of the way as he or she progresses through the program. Upon completion, an EDP Engineer is placed as full-time engineer within one of ERCOT’s engineering groups.
