To broaden the experiential training for Master of Science in Engineering (MSE) students in the Whiting School of Engineering, INBT collaborates with major industry partners to offer a Co-Op opportunity to incoming MSE students in the Materials Science and Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering programs. This is a credited and paid Co-Op program.
Accepted students will be assigned a faculty advisor at JHU and a research mentor at the sponsoring company. The company will develop a list of goals and development objectives for the student. During the Co-Op period, students meet with their INBT academic advisor every 6 weeks for progress updates. The Co-Op duration is 6 months.
Current sponsoring companies include:
At the end of the Co-Op internship, the student will present an essay based on their research experience to be approved by their department and the industry mentor. For students in the Materials Science and Engineering program, a journal publication can be submitted in lieu of an essay. Please contact the department for more details.
New or existing master’s students in Materials Science and Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering.
Currently, not all of our industry partners can accommodate international students. However, we have had many international students successfully complete the program.
Please send the following materials to Camille Mathis at email@example.com by May 6, 2019 (July-December cohort):
Applicants will be interviewed and evaluated by the INBT program committee members and, if accepted, will be matched with a corporate sponsor. The company has the right to accept or reject individual candidates.
