The 2016 Summer Research Program for College Juniors, beginning on Monday, June 13th, will provide science and engineering undergraduates from colleges around the country with opportunities to carry out cutting-edge research in a rapidly growing and technologically important diverse field of engineered interfaces.
During this eight week program held on the NYU Tandon School of Engineering's downtown Brooklyn campus, students will be exposed to cross-disciplinary research–with the focus on real-world challenges–emphasizing timely and efficient transfer of innovations from the bench through engineering to applications, devices and technologies.
Students who are accepted into the program will be offered a stipend of $3,000 for the duration of the course as well as on-campus housing in the center of the Brooklyn Tech Triangle. The research program will feature structured programming designed to take advantage of all that New York City has to offer including visits to Broadway, Yankee Stadium and much more. Highlights of the program include:
On-campus housing for the duration of the program
Research internship stipend
Planned excursions and activities throughout New York City
Site visits at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering's incubators and companies throughout the Brooklyn Tech Triangle, such as Etsy
The Summer Research Internship Program is open to college juniors that have completed three years of study by the start of the program. Students from around the country interested in Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Chemistry or Physics are encouraged to apply. (Please note: Students do not need to be a current NYU student to apply.) Applicants must be US citizens and have a cumulative GPA of 3.25 and above. The deadline to apply is Monday, February 15, 2016.*

2015 Summer Research Highlights
The inaugural year for the Summer Research Program for College Juniors brought incredibly talented students from all over the country to the NYU School of Engineering for the summer. Research topics included thermal control of microarry printing, development of technology for 3-D printing of elastomers and engineering structural alginate gels for PC-12 cell development, to name a few.
