You have the opportunity to work on a research project titled “Multifunctional Thermoset Polymer Matrix with Self-Sensing and Self-Healing Capabilities” with the Adaptive Intelligent Materials & Systems Center (AIMS) in the School of Engineering for Matter, Transport and Energy as part of the Undergraduate Research Apprenticeship Program (URAP) through the Army Educational Outreach Program (AEOP). The program will take place during the summer of 2016 with research including:
- specimen preparation
- mechanical testing of synthesized specimens
- prediction of material properties using simple simulations
You will be able to work up to 300 hours during the summer and will receive an educational stipend. You will need the motivation to spend time and effort in learning through guided and self-initiated study. Additional requirements include ability to commit at least ten hours per week, proven ability in science and mathematics (e.g. calculus, linear algebra, differential equations), and engineering mechanics.
The deadline to apply is February 15, 2016. Apply now.
