Each intern will work with one or more CNSE/industrial-partnered research programs,
and interact closely with CNSE faculty, staff, post-doctoral researchers and
graduate students. The program also offers exposure to industrial experts through
weekly seminars and public presentation of research results. The capstone of
the internship program is a public poster presentation showcasing each intern's
summer research project.
