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.
Selected candidates for this opportunity will take part in innovative vehicle research with IACMI's partner at Michigan State University in Detroit or East Lansing or the Vehicles Scale-Up Facilty in Detroit. 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 Vehicles Technology Area, located in Michigan where 70% of all US automotive RD&D occurs at more than 370 R&D centers, is focused on reducing the weight of vehicle structures. Specifically, the institute is focusing on advanced fiber-reinforced polymer composites for vehicles; materials that combine strong fibers with strong plastics that are lighter and stronger than steel. These materials are crucial to the auto industry, which continues to look for ways to manufacture vehicles that are fuel-efficient and safe. Composite materials also are important in the development of efficient power generation and the increase of renewable power production.
