The Materials Research Institute and PPG will host a summer undergraduate research program from May 30 - August 4, 2017 which combines research from multiple areas. The program will consist of 8 Penn State undergraduate students working in materials related research groups.

In this program, PPG will sponsor research positions in various Penn State Departments that are open to Penn State undergraduate students who are majoring in material science, engineering science and mechanics, chemistry, physics, all branches of engineering, etc. and have an interest in materials research.

Students will experience the challenge and excitement of a career in research. Students work closely with one of Penn State’s faculty members, together with graduate students and postdoctoral scholars in their research group. In addition students are able to acquire valuable skills, participate in seminars and join in a variety of extra-curricular activities, including professional development.
