Congratulations to the summer high school interns of Ma2JIC 2022. This program matches high school students with current graduate students to assist with an ongoing research project related to welding engineering. The Ma2JIC Summer Internship Program was developed to expose students to welding engineering and laboratory sciences who may otherwise not have had the opportunity. allowing them to learn more about education and career pathways in engineering. Students have the opportunity to conduct research in an engineering laboratory and participate in data analysis, coding, and modeling. The summer interns have unique experiences evaluating and testing materials under the supervision of a paired graduate student mentor. The interns and the independent projects they completed are listed below.
