Win a scholarship and all-inclusive internship in Italy!

i3 Piusi - Italian Innovation Internship


Piusi is proud to host its first Italian Innovation Internship engineering competition in Massachusetts. Explore and show off your talent and knowledge while competing against your peers. See if you have what it takes to create the next product idea to add to Piusi’s line of fluid handling equipment. The competition is open to all college and graduate students pursuing an engineering degree in a college or university in Massachusetts. Only ten candidates will be selected to participate and present their innovative idea to Piusi’s top management and engineering team. The top three ideas will receive scholarships, and the first place candidate will be offered a lifetime opportunity to intern at the Piusi headquarters in Italy.

The Challenge


The world is full of innovation and opportunities, and Piusi is a major player that never stops looking for new and cutting-edge ideas. We challenge you to come up with a new product idea that will improve the line of Piusi products. We want you to create an original design that has never been seen in the industry before. All we ask is for the product you design to be related or closely linked to fluid handling, to enhance the overall efficiency of existing products, to potentially break into new industries or fulfill any other currently unmet needs for Piusi customers. Participants will have the opportunity to choose from three different objectives: Developing a new flowmeter; a new electronic management system; or any other original idea the participant has to bring a groundbreaking innovation to the fuel industry. What you design is completely up to you.
The choice is yours, so be creative!
