Moncrief Undergraduate Summer Internship

Sumer Interns 2018

The Moncrief Undergraduate Summer Internship Program is organized to provide summer support for qualified undergraduate students of mathematics, science, and engineering to work within the Oden Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences during the summer months. Interns work with faculty and research staff from one of the Oden Institute's 21 research centers and groups on one of a wide range of research topics. Research activities generally focus on developing modeling and simulation methods to study problems in areas such as energy, advanced materials, biomedical research, nanomanufacturing and related areas that draw on applied and computational mathematics, computing, fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, mathematical physics, and biology.

Eligibility Requirements

For participation in the Summer 2019 program applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents who are currently enrolled in an undergraduate institution and will be entering their junior or senior year in Fall 2019
