Are you an aspiring scientist or engineer looking to learn about how people create materials that improve our lives?
Explore materials science and engineering while learning about nanotechonology and sustainability online from your home during a week-long Summer
Materials are at the core of technological advances across all fields of science and engineering. From the ever-shrinking microchip containing billions of nanoscale transistors to advances in drug delivery for cancer therapy, materials scientists and engineers manipulate atomic structures to change properties on small and large scales. The future possibilities for materials innovations are endless and continue to contribute to improving our daily lives.
The Drexel University Materials Science & Engineering Summer Institute - Home Edition 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 processing of materials determine physical, mechanical, electrical and thermal properties.
Through science and engineering activities during live online sessions, students will gain an understanding of how materials impact the fields of energy, biotechnology, electronics, and aerospace. Sustainability and nanotechnology will be a theme woven through all of the modules.
Applications will be accepted until June 30, 2020, or until all available slots are full, whichever comes first. Apply here.
Applications require two components:
- Transcript (unofficial is fine)
- Essay (100-300 words) answering the following questions:
- What material is most interesting to you and why?
- Why do you want to be part of the Summer Institute?
Questions can be directed to Dr. Christopher Weyant.
