Landwehr ‘16 comes full circle at MnTAP
University of Minnesota’s Technical Assistance Program (MnTAP) staff matches third and fourth year college students with local companies and municipalities that want assistance with addressing long-term challenges. Most of the interns are students from the University of Minnesota’s Twin Cities and Duluth campuses. Many are majoring in chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, and environmental health.
Being a MnTAP intern strongly influenced Nathan Landwehr’s career plans. He completed internships in 2015 and 2016 before earning his Bachelors degree in Environmental Science, Policy, and Management from the U. During his first internship, Landwehr worked for the Southwest Regional Solid Waste Commission, where he conducted solid waste assessments at nine small businesses, ranging from automotive and warehousing to printing and food service. The following summer, Landwehr helped residents in the city of Woodbury, Minnesota optimize their sprinkler systems through smart irrigation controllers.
Since then, Landwehr has come full circle. He now works for MnTAP as an internship program administrator. Along with serving as a waste reduction specialist, he now leads intern recruitment efforts, manages project agreements, and facilitates communications with companies.
