Engineering Materials for a Healthy World, May 22 - July 28, 2023
The Materials Science and Engineering Program and Sustainabile Energy Institute are proud to sponsor its second annual Engineering Materials for a Healthy World, an interdisciplinary program offering undergraduates research opportunities in materials for energy, health, and infrastructure justice in service of creating and sustaining a healthy world. A healthy world is one that has reached carbon neutrality, possesses a sustaining infrastructure, and provides healthcare for all.
Our world is rapidly changing. While our actions are critical to maintaining a healthy world, researchers will become increasingly responsible for developing innovative solutions to address the energy, health, and infrastructure crises that we increasingly will face. It is imperative to train the next generation in science and engineering to give them the fundamental knowledge to develop ground-breaking solutions to these problems. It is equally imperative that training the next generation be inclusive across socio-economic, gender, and racial/ethnic demographic groups.
Students will participate a 10-week summer research experience from May 22 - July 28 at CU Boulder that will be augmented with professional development in science justice and policy. This program will:
Students will participate in research experiences at the forefront of engineering materials in energy, health and infrastructure toward creating a healthy world, including:
Students will participate in professional development seminars and workshops, and will be available to explore all that Boulder, Colorado has to offer.
