​Departmental Undergraduate Research Support

The Materials Science and Engineering Department at Michigan Tech supports undergraduate research via the Barbara Stoyack Link Undergraduate Research Internship Program, targeting female MSE undergraduate students, and the Charles and Carroll McArthur Research Internship Program, for all MSE undergraduate students. Interns work with faculty in their labs as paid research assistants working on research programs during the academic year and/or during the summer. Interns who present papers at national conferences based on their internship activities may receive up to $400 to defray travel expenses. Subject to satisfactory performance, internships may be renewed for up to two consecutive years. Students applying for these internships demonstrate interest and potential for success in research and graduate studies at either the M.S. or Ph.D level. Applications must include endorsement from a faculty member in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering who is willing to advise the prospective intern. Applicants are required to submit a statement describing proposed research activities during the period of the internship. Applications are available in mid-September and are generally due within a two-week time period. Please contact Dr. Yun Hang Hu, McArthur Research Professor, for more information yunhangh@mtu.edu.
