  • Through students, further collaboration with scientists on campus
  • Participate in the annual retreat to meet UC scientists students, potential interns, other company scientists
  • Potential to use UC facilities through the collaboration
  • Opportunity to participate in weekly campus seminars

Students gain much from internships:

  • Ability to work in a highly creative non-academic environment
  • Opportunity to participate in focused team approach to defined research goals
  • Ability to use equipment and facilities not available on campus
  • Discover the type of environment, which suits future career goals
  • Participate in industry seminars
