2010 Summer Intern Program

nees@UCLA hosted 11 undergraduate and high school summer interns from June through August 2010.

After 10 weeks of hands-on research experience, exposure to the latest methodologies in earthquake studies and the chance to work with established researchers, our students emerged from the program with improved observation and communication skills. They also became more aware of the diversity in earthquake engineering research and gained the information to decide whether a career in research was right for them.

Students from the NEES@UCLA Summer Intern Program took part in a Professional Development Series, Technical Seminar Series and Weekly Writing Workshops, and Field Trips. Other activities included:

  • NEESreu students attended an NEESreu Orientation at the University of Nevada at Reno from August 24-27, 2010.
  • NEES and CENSreu students attended CENS Tech Camp at James Reserve Ecological Facility, Idyllwild, CA from June 22-23, 2010.
  • NEESreu students presented their final poster sessions at the Young Researchers Symposium at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, followed by an architecture tour of Chicago.
