Description

The Institute for Advanced Composite Manufacturing Innovation has an interest in developing the skills of strong technical undergraduate and graduate students who might one day support the workforce in both talent and leadership.  The IACMI Internship Program offers undergraduate and graduate students a chance to participate in a 10-week summer program with an assigned mentor at one of IACMI’s partner sites.  The program is managed for IACMI by ORAU.

Project Description

Selected candidates for this opportunity will take part in innovative design, modeling, and simulation research with IACMI's partner at Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN. 

IAMCI’s Design, Modeling & Simulation Technology Area, located in Indiana and led by Purdue University, offers modeling and simulation tools to help address the need to shorten the development cycle and decrease the cost of composites manufacturing while allowing more time for innovation throughout the entire supply chain.
