The 2015 Science and Engineering Fellows Program was a great success! There were twenty undergraduate students from the College of the Environment and Life Sciences and the College of Engineering that graduated from the program this past December. Each student was paired with research faculty and staff and worked on projects such as Gold Nanoparticles in Hydrogels, Gene expressions on GC4-spc male germ cell line, and other projects in various engineering disciplines, biology, wildlife conservation biology, and cell and molecular biology.
The URI Extension Outreach Center has engaged over fifty students since the program began in 2012 working on publishable research and innovative projects. As a results of this experience, over 80% of our Fellows have pursued graduate degree programs or earned jobs in their field after graduation.
Starting in 2016, the Science and Engineering Fellows Program has moved to the College of the Environment and Life Sciences and is now being coordinated by Michelle Fontes-Barros, the Assistance Director of Student Diversity Initiatives.
