The MIT summer research internship program for rising junior and senior

The MIT Materials Processing Center and the Center for Materials Science and Engineering sponsor a summer research internship program for rising junior and senior undergraduates in science and engineering fields. This challenging program brings promising students to MIT to learn and perform research in laboratories in a broad selection of materials science subfields. In addition to providing a stipend and round-trip travel expenses, we host presentations and group discussions on topics relevant to materials scientists, such as graduate school, careers in materials science, creating effective poster presentations, and management of intellectual property. At the conclusion of the program, the students present their individual research results at a poster session. The summer research internship, offered each year since 1983, affords students an invaluable experience in top-notch cutting edge research.
