Spend your summer working alongside some of the most brilliant minds in Engineering at a few of the nation’s most prestigious institutions, including Caltech, UCI, Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, and USC.

USC-Viterbi-School-of-Engineering

Aerospace & Mechanical Engineering Program

This is an opportunity for qualified students to participate in an undergraduate research program at the Viterbi School of Engineering and the Aerospace & Mechanical Engineering department at the University of Southern California.

Students will work under the guidance of PhD students to conduct research around the Dryden Wind Tunnel.

UCI

Autonomous Systems Engineering Academy Program

The UCI Autonomous Systems Engineering Academy Summer Program will teach students the basics of engineering design through a hands-on approach. Students will learn the fundamentals of essential aerospace design, computer-aided design, 3D printing, basic electronics and fabrication techniques. This will be taught in a series of mini projects that will culminate in a final capstone project of creating a fully operational drone.

Students will work under the guidance of graduate and undergraduate UCI engineering and computer science participants.

USC-Viterbi-School-of-Engineering

Computer Science Program

This is an opportunity for qualified students to participate in an undergraduate research program in computer science at the Viterbi School of Engineering and the Computer Science Department at the University of Southern California.

Students will work under the guidance of graduate students to experience the process of research as a creative intellectual activity at the research laboratories at USC.

Cal Tech

Caltech-Base11 AMP – Aerospace Mentoring Program

This program invites four qualified students to visit the Graduate Aerospace Laboratories at Caltech (GALCIT) for 10 weeks during the summer.

Students will collaborate with graduate aerospace student mentors to define and develop a project, write research proposals for their projects, and carry out the work over a 10-week period. At the conclusion of the program, students will submit a technical paper and give an oral presentation in the department modeled on professional technical meetings.

National Air and Space Museum Preservation and Restoration Internship Program

The Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum holds in trust over 60,000 artifacts and more than 20,000 cubic feet of archival materials. The collections specialists actively work on the preservation, restoration, and long-term care of the objects in this collection. This standard of excellence is demonstrated through the restoration and preservation of large artifacts within the Mary Baker Engen Restoration Hangar at the Steven F. Udvar‐Hazy Center.
