SMALL Honors Internship Program (SHIP)
  • Studies have shown that students who participate as a member of a research team are significantly more likely to pursue an engineering education and ultimately aspire to a career in engineering.
  • In SMALL's outreach activities, a key pedagogical challenge is to motivate young students to become multidisciplinary engineers.
  • This challenge will be addressed through the PI's SMALL (Sensors and MicroActuators
    Learning Lab) Honors Internship Program (SHIP).
  • As part of the activities for the funded NSF project, the PI started to operate the SHIP program in his SMALL lab by integrating existing on-campus outreach programs:
    • (1) BEAM for K-12 minorities
    • (2) INR for K-12 minorities
    • (3) CSTEP for college minorities
    • (4) International exchange or visiting students.
    • (5) Undergraduate students
