Penn State research program in Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering

Penn State’s Department of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering is now accepting applications for an outstanding undergraduate summer research program in the nuclear field at Penn State—the Toshiba-Westinghouse Undergraduate Fellows Program:

Made possible through a gift from Toshiba-Westinghouse, the Toshiba-Westinghouse Undergraduate Fellows Program is a 10-week paid summer program that provides an unparalleled opportunity for undergraduates to obtain hands-on research experience and professional development in the nuclear field at Penn State. Students will work closely with a faculty mentor on a state-of-the-art nuclear research project, and will have terrific opportunities to network with industry representatives and participate in site visits to locations such as Three Mile Island. The program runs from May 29—August 3, 2018.  Fellows will receive a $6000 stipend as well as on-campus housing. We will accept applications until January 31, 2018. 

Penn State’s Department of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering would like to invite applications for this paid summer research experience from outstanding undergraduate students in engineering, computer science, physics or chemistry with an interest in the nuclear field.  Applicants must have completed their sophomore year by the start of summer 2018 and have a minimum GPA of 3.0.
