Why It’s Special:
In just over a year, you can gain:

  • 9-months work experience
    (this year’s average annualized internship compensation is just over $60,000)
  • A master’s degree in chemistry or applied physics.  Focus areas in: polymer science, molecular sensors, PV/semiconductors and optics
  • A professional network that will provide the foundation for a career.
  • A resume with something on it. Close to 90% of student interns have regular positions within 3 months of completing their internships.
  • More data about what industry is all about.

Even if you think you want a PhD, this program allows you to gain insight on what the marketplace is looking for – allowing you to be more strategic in choosing research that will allow you to build a marketable skill set and develop the professional skills that will make you more competitive. Regardless of which trail you eventually blaze, this program allows you to do it with more data about the opportunities out there.
