This group is a place to share information on summer research programs and internships for students.

If you have summer research opportunities or internships, you can share them here. Please contact the group manager with the information you would like to share.

By joining this group, you can also participate in discussions on topics of interest to you in the forum.

Summer Research Opportunities

Summer Undergraduate Research Program at Purdue (SURF)

The SURF program is helping students across engineering, science, and technology disciplines discover a world of opportunity available to them through research. By closely working with other creative and innovative people, students explore, discover, and transform ideas into reality to advance society and improve people's lives.

Computational Nanotechnology Summer Undergraduate Research Program at Purdue (NCN SURF)

The Network for Computational Nanotechnology sponsors several research positions each summer for students who are interested in computation and simulation who would like to work on a research project at Purdue University and publish a simulation tool on nanoHUB.  Our NCN SURF web page has details about this program as well as descriptions of the various research projects available and examples of summer student work from previous years.
