Summer 2011 Retaining Engineers through Research Entrepreneurship and Advanced-Materials Training (RETREAT)
Summer 2009 internships
Each year, the High-Performance Materials Institute (HPMI) at Florida State University is looking for undergraduate and graduate students pursuing science and technology majors to participate in a paid summer internship program.
Majors of interest include, but are not limited to: Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics, Computer Science, and all forms of Engineering
Students will work in multidisciplinary groups headed by one or more professors associated with HPMI as well as graduate students currently working at HPMI. Sample projects include: Design, manufacture and fly carbon fiber composite unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)
Research and development of smart structures with intrinsic structural health monitoring capability by harnessing triboluminescence and photocatalysis
Building nano-material based lightning strike protection for composite aircrafts
Look for the announcement early each year for the summer opportunities.
