MISO (Midcontinent Independent System Operator)

MISO (Midcontinent Independent System Operator) is an independent, not-for-profit, member-based organization focused on three critical tasks:

– Managing the generation and transmission of high-voltage electricity across 15 U.S. states and the Canadian province of Manitoba

– Managing the energy markets in the MISO region

– Planning the grid of tomorrow

42 million people depend on MISO to generate and transmit the right amount of electricity every minute of every day – reliably, dependably, and cost-effectively.


The energy industry is rapidly changing. As the power grid changes, so does our approach to meeting energy demands. We need a diversified group of smart, motivated problem solvers to overcome these challenges. MISO’s internship program helps prepare students for future roles as leaders and innovators in the energy industry.

Our interns are presented with meaningful and challenging projects that will have a direct impact on the success of MISO. Interns gain exposure to all aspects of the company and leave with a better understanding of how MISO and the corporate world work together to deliver power to over 42 million customers. MISO’s geographic footprint stretches across 15 states and one Canadian province. This allows interns to work with a diverse group of employees across the nation.
