A planned maintenance window to perform upgrades to the Colleague system beginning 12 a.m. Monday, October 2, will affect certain IT systems. Details on impacted systems are available.
Students accepted to the START program will choose from a group of projects, each led by a particular faculty mentor and focused on exploring a research question. A project may have multiple students who each contribute in their own way.
A student's overall contribution to the project is referred to as their Discovery Opportunity. Completion of a Discovery Opportunity will involve meeting research targets along the way. Research targets may involve a range of possible tasks that include learning how to use instruments, attending academic conferences, running experiments and/or presenting your work.
The mission of the Mathematics and Sciences Division's START program is to increase students' retention and success in the Associate in Engineering and Associate in Science programs and improve engineering, quantitative and scientific literacy. Students will actively participate in faculty-mentored, co-curricular discovery opportunities. Through hands-on research and engagement with the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) community, students will enrich their academic experience, further develop technical skills and increase their ability to be competitive in higher education and the STEM workforce.
Students may have the opportunity to work on research projects and interact with peers from our partner institutions and have campus tours.
START applications for the Spring 2024 semester open on October 16. If you are interested in the internship and would like an email reminder about the application window, complete the interest form.
