The Materials Science and NanoEngineering (MSNE) department offers research experience for Rice University graduate students enrolled in the MSNE Professional Master’s program. Each student will have a faculty mentor who will guide them through a summer research project. Selected students will participate in a 3 month (40 hours per week) program from with a $6,000 stipend paid semi-monthly.
During the summer, students attend weekly group meetings with their respective research groups and faculty mentors and participate in research activities with the other graduate students and postdocs. Participants will have an opportunity to work closely with a MSNE faculty member in an area of interest (ex. Nanotechnology, Energy Conversion and Storage, Metallurgy, Surfaces, Interfaces, etc.).
