    Computational Mechanics, Multiphysics Modeling Methods

    Minimum time commitment in hours per week: 3-6

    Qualifications of a Student:
    We are looking for smart, flexible, committed students who want to learn about research in the area nanomaterials and applied mechanics. You need to be willing to commit to 3 to 6 hours per week of work in return for CME 392 or/and CME 496 credits.

    To apply, you must have a strong GPA and you must have completed at least CME 203, CME 260 and CME 434. You must also be very reliable and committed to scholarship, and have good teamwork skills.

    Brief Summary of what is expected from the student:
    You would join an active laboratory with other undergraduate and graduate research assistants under my supervision. You’ll be expected to participate in various aspects of the work and to attend regular lab meetings. The work involves helping to conduct experimental sessions, preparing materials for the experiments, data entry, validation and analysis, literature search, numerical modeling and calculations using available computer codes. We will train you for all tasks.

    This experience will allow you to understand basic aspects of materials engineering research, and help you decide whether you'd like to pursue it later in your career and graduate studies. You will learn many generalic skills and meet other researchers who can give you valuable advice.
