Two students from Youngstown State University’s STEM College recently completed summer internships in South Korea with Power Plaza Co., a power- conversion technology company.
The initiative is part of a strategic business development campaign by the Youngstown/Warren Regional Chamber and Republican U.S. Sen. Rob Portman to attract South Korean investment in Northeast Ohio. The internships were designed to help Power Plaza advance electric-vehicleSFlbtechnology from several perspectives: personal mobility, commercial vehicle application and power- conversion technologies.
