2017 STARnet Undergraduate Research Internship
Links to form at
January 19, 2017
We thank DARPA and the STARnet industry sponsors for supporting these internships.
The STARnet Undergraduate Research Internship Program provides undergraduates at the end of their third or fourth year of bachelor studies with valuable research experience, mentoring, and contact with industry representatives. Participating undergraduates not only gain confidence in their ability to perform hands-on research, but they also come to appreciate the doors that are opened to those with an advanced degree. The program takes education beyond the classroom to achieve its objectives:
- Rigorous and engaging training for undergraduates in Engineering, Material Science, Computer Science, Chemistry, and Physics
- Increased retention of students interested in majors relevant to the Semiconductor Industry
- Increased numbers of STEM students progressing to graduate school programs
The program achieves its objectives first and foremost by supporting students in research under the guidance of faculty and graduate student mentors. Our network of universities gives students the opportunity to participate in summer exchange programs, allowing them to acquire new technical skills and broaden their view of the research field. In addition, the program provides contact between student and industry experts, exposing them to different career opportunities and the benefits of an advanced degree.
Aimee Martinez, University of California, Riverside and Bilal Overton, University of La Verne completed their 2016 summer internship with the C-SPIN Center. Click on the videos to hear their experiences.
Internship stipends will be competitive. Suggested length of internship is 10 weeks for you and the professor to benefit most from the experience. Start and end dates will be determined by the professor and intern. We suggest reaching out to professors before the awards are announced to determine if a professor has room for you in the lab the summer of 2017. STARnet professors are aware you are seeking an internship. Interns are responsible for housing arrangements. STARnet will reimburse travel up to $500. There will be a STARnet Undergraduate social media group for interns to share their experience and network. All interns will be invited to present a poster at TECHCON 2017 in Austin, TX.
