We’re looking for undergraduate students who are interested in spending eight to ten weeks of their summer with us working with EME faculty mentors, current graduate students, and alumni and industry partners on an active research project. Learn what is involved in laboratory research and/or data collection and analysis and take part in team-building and professional development activities with the other members of your summer research cohort.
The summer research program is designed to help undergraduate students gain a deeper understanding of research being conducted in the energy and mineral engineering fields while building a foundation in fundamental research and data analysis skills. Students identify areas of interest so they are aligned with the most applicable research project and mentor.
Who should apply?
All interested undergraduates are invited to apply, but special priority will be given to students who are:
- Penn State sophomores who are considering or planning to enroll in a major in the department, including those at Commonwealth campuses.
- Penn State juniors (or higher) currently enrolled in the department who are considering applying to our graduate program.
- Juniors (or higher) at other universities and colleges who would like to sample research topics in the department and would consider applying to our graduate program.
