The 2017 Summer Research Program for College Juniors, beginning on Monday, June 12, 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.

Program Highlights

In addition to research opportunities, students accepted into the program will enjoy structured programming designed to take advantage of all that New York City has to offer. 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, such as Broadway and Yankee Stadium
  • Tours of the NYU Tandon School of Engineering's Future Labs
  • Site visits with companies throughout the Brooklyn Tech Triangle, such as Etsy
