Research Internship in Science & Engineering
Boston University Summer Term
- Dates: June 30 – August 9, 2013.
- Grade level: Students entering 12th grade in fall 2013.
The Research Internship in Science & Engineering (RISE) program provides academically motivated rising high school seniors with the opportunity to conduct university-level research. Under the mentorship of our distinguished faculty, post-doctoral fellows, and graduate students, RISE students work on a research project designed by their professor for forty hours a week for six weeks. Students gain valuable technical and analytical skills, as well as insights into the scientific process. We have research opportunities in the following subject areas: astronomy, biology, biomedical engineering, chemistry, electrical and computer engineering, mechanical engineering, medical laboratory research, physics, and psychology. RISE is open to residential and commuter students.
