Conduct Computational Research at ORNL through the C-STARS Program

Computational Science and Technology Advanced Research Studies (C-STARS)
at Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Attn: Computationally experienced Master’s students, recent Master’s graduates, and PhD students

Graduate research opportunities are available at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, through the Computational Science and Technology Advanced Research Studies (C-STARS) Program. C-STARS participants conduct challenging computational research in areas that support ORNL missions, with current openings in artificial intelligence, modeling and simulation, software engineering, geographic information systems, and life and medical sciences database research.

Participants will have access to state-of-the-art laboratory equipment, professional development activities, presentation opportunities over the summer, and a large network of ORNL researchers and interns. Financial benefits include a biweekly stipend; possible housing or in- and out-bound travel reimbursements, if eligible; conference travel costs; and any publication-related fees. This opportunity is open to all current graduate students with a GPA of 3.5/4 or higher and those who have recently received a Master’s degree; there is no citizenship requirement.

C-STARS appointment dates and duration are decided upon between the research mentor and participant, although appointments are typically 12 months in duration. Appointments may be part-time or full-time participation. Apply now and more potential mentors will see your application – you’ll note your desired appointment dates within your application.

Mechanical Engineering Technology (BS) NEWSLETTER – Spring 2019

Dear Alums, Friends, and Students:

IT IS A PLEASURE to share with you a brief selection of the news and accomplishments from our students and faculty in Mechanical Engineering Technology. As a new Dean, it has been an honor to learn from and become a member of this commUNITY that is so dedicated to the professional, technical, and social development of our students to graduate into the changing needs of industry.

We learned in December that the administrative reporting structure for the Mechanical Engineering Technology program would change to the College of Engineering to form a new department in Manufacturing and Mechanical Engineering Technology. The Machine Shop will remain managed by this program. EET and MET will be co-hosting a new Masters degree in Mechatronics (pending final approvals).This transition will occur over summer 2019 and is being planned to be seamless for the students.

As our program continues to grow and gain prominence, we hope you will partner with us in a way that is highly personal and meaningful to you (scholarships, lab equipment, internship experiences, virtual tours of your facilities, safety modules, etc.) and that has a significant impact on student development.

Best Regards,

Adrienne Minerick
Dean, School of Technology
