    This year’s average, annualized internship salary is over $64,000.
  • A master’s degree in chemistry or applied physics.
    Focus areas: PV/ Semiconductors, Polymers, Molecular Sensors and Optics.
    (We also have a track in bioinformatics that follows a similar model. This session will focus on the four tracks above).
