The MRI-PPG program gives undergraduate students the opportunity to participate in frontier materials research at a major research facility. You will perform research with faculty on topic areas that are of interest to PPG. Students work closely with a Penn State faculty member, together with graduate students and postdoctoral scholars in the research group.

Topic areas of interest to PPG include: coatings, polymers, glass, fibers, materials characterization techniques and various materials projects.

This program will interface with NSF REU students in other technical departments on Penn State's campus.
