IACMI offers an internship program for undergraduate and graduate students interested in learning more about advanced composites technologies to aid in the creation of low-cost and energy-efficient manufacturing. IACMI internship participants have the opportunity to use state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment and to interact with scientists and engineers who are at the top of the advanced composites and manufacturing fields.
Through the IACMI Internship Program, students have an opportunity to participate in a hands-on, research experience with an assigned mentor at one of IACMI’s partner or member organizations. The internship provides a maximum of 400 hours of participation either in a 10-week, short-term appointment or a long-term appointment spanning the course of one year.
The program offers participants an internship rich in experiential learning and professional development opportunities, as well as a chance to be a part of a team in emerging technologies. During their appointment period, interns will develop a scientific poster and will deliver a brief presentation to exhibit the results of their internship project during an IACMI Members Meeting. In addition to being able to showcase their research, this event allows students an opportunity to develop their presentation and networking skills. More than 300 individuals from IACMI member and partner organizations in industry, government, and academic partners attend IACMI Members Meetings, which are bi-annual with the location and dates varying every year.
The IACMI Internship Program is managed in partnership with Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU). For more information, visit ORAU’s IACMI Internship page.
