Materials Science and Engineering Summer Institute

The Drexel University Materials Science and Engineering Summer Institute is a one-week commuter program that will give aspiring scientists and engineers the chance to learn about how atomic elements arrange themselves to form the materials that are all around us. Furthermore, the Summer Institute will emphasize how variables in the processing of materials determine physical, mechanical, electrical, and thermal properties. Through hands-on science and engineering activities, students will gain an understanding of how materials impact the fields of energy, biotechnology, and electronics. Sustainability and nanotechnology will be a theme woven through the modules. The learning environment includes work in a computer classroom, a materials science laboratory, and the Centralized Research Facility, which includes advanced microscopy equipment. The week will culminate with presentations in which students will discuss their results from group projects.

Dates July 15–19, July 29–August 2, and August 5–9, 2019
Residential No
Cost $795 (includes all materials, laboratory supplies, and lunch each day)
Eligibility Motivated high school students entering their junior or senior year in fall 2019 or recent high school graduates.
Deadline June 1, 2019
