Summer Scholars Applications Now Being Accepted

Each year for 9 weeks during the summer, the Materials Processing Center (MPC) and the Center for Materials Science and Engineering (CMSE) co-sponsor a Research Internship Program. The program attracts some of the best science and engineering undergraduates from across the country to conduct graduate-level materials research. Students can select from a wide array of projects available.

This year's Summer Scholar Internship Program will run from June 7 - August 6, 2016.

For more information about the Internship Program, please refer to the Summer Scholar Quick Facts and the FAQ portion of our website.

The application deadline is February 12, 2016.                                register

  • MISTI Global See Funds Winners Announced

    The MIT International Science and Technology Initiatives (MISTI)-managed Global Seed Funds Program (GSF) awarded in January 2016 $2 million to cover MIT faculty international travel, meeting, and workshop costs. Read More
  • Switchable Material Could Enable New Memory Chips

    Two MIT researchers have developed a thin-film material whose phase and electrical properties can be switched between metallic and semiconducting simply by applying a small voltage. The discovery could pave the way for a new kind of “nonvolatile” computer memory chip. Read More
  • Local Boy Makes Good

    Michael Watts took two decades to make the 20-mile trip from suburban Hingham to tenure at MIT. For both his master’s and his doctoral theses, Michael Watts developed a photonic circuit that could align the polarizations of light traveling through an optical chip. Read More
  • MIT Sandbox Invites 11,000 Students to Innovate

    MIT Sandbox Innovation Fund Program (Sandbox), an Institute-wide program that will support student-initiated ideas, launched today. The endeavor opens more pathways for all types of student innovators — whether they have a seed of an idea, a nascent technology, a specific startup in mind, or are planning the next moonshot. Sandbox will connect students with tailored educational experiences, mentoring, and up to $25,000 to help qualified students and teams nurture their creative brainstorms. Read More
  • Clearing the Way for Floquet

    MIT team led by Associate Professor of Physics Nuh Gedik demonstrates pure Floquet-Bloch states in the solid topological insulator bismuth selenide. Read More
  • New Microscope Creates Near-Real-Time Videos of Nanoscale Processes

    Engineers at MIT have designed an atomic force microscope that scans images 2,000 times faster than existing commercial models. With this new high-speed instrument, the team produced images of chemical processes taking place at the nanoscale, at a rate that is close to real-time video. Read More
  • Scott Aaronson on Google's New Quantum-Computing Paper

    Google experiments suggest that the D-Wave computer exploits quantum phenomena. Scott Aaronson, an associate professor of electrical engineering and computer science at MIT, has been following the D-Wave story for years. MIT News asked him to help make sense of the Google researchers’ new paper. Read More
