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 research in CGS applications with IACMI's partner at The University of Dayton in Ohio.  Selected candidates may also be assigned to an IACMI industry partner with the noted states, as well.  In addition, depending on the host facility, selected candidates may be subject to a drug test and/or background check.

IACMI’s CGS Technology Area, led by the University of Dayton Research Institute in Ohio, is focused on reducing cost to enable higher manufacturing capacity of carbon composite storage tanks used for natural gas and hydrogen.  Compressed natural gas is emerging as a low-cost alternative fuel for vehicles, and demand for compressed gas storage vessels continues to grow.
