Semester/Summer Undergraduate Research in engineering (SURE) Program
SURE Program at Purdue Calumet provides students an opportunity to work closely with faculty on research projects during the academic year and/or summer. SURE supports active research participation of undergraduate students in ongoing research projects. These projects help to prepare students for graduate school and the workforce. Also, participating in research projects prepares students to think independently, collaborate with other students, gain hands-on experience, and apply theoretical knowledge gained in classroom to solve practical engineering problems. The students will be exposed to professional development, technical, and academic seminars. SURE links undergraduate students with faculty and graduate student mentors, and introduces them to advanced research tools at the frontier of engineering.
Interns needed at Innophos Chicago Heights & Waterway Plants
Our company, a chemical manufacturer, is looking for two (2) interns for the summer, one mechanical engineer and one chemical engineer. This is a paid internship at $15.00 per hour, 40 hours per week, Monday – Friday schedule. The intern can be either a Junior or Senior (either going into their Junior or Senior year or graduating). Each applicant will have to send a resume in Word format to my email address for consideration; if management is interested, the student will be contacted for an interview as soon as possible.
Please see requirements below to qualify:
- The student should have completed basic courses in chemistry and physics. Some course work in chemical engineering will be helpful.
- Work will include data collection and analysis toward process improvements in the areas of inorganic chemical reactions, crystallization, evaporation, separation and drying.
- The student should have completed at least a first course in thermodynamics and heat transfer.
- Work will include data collection and analysis toward improvements in energy and water use in plant chemical manufacturing processes.
The students will work under the direction, guidance, and mentoring of experienced engineers in a continuous operation chemical plant producing food and pharmaceutical grade chemical additives. Students will have an opportunity to work on projects with financial benefits to the company, learn about continuous and batch chemical operations, as well as safe work practices and design. Work is day shift, Monday through Friday, 40 hours per week. Expected duration is 10 to 14 weeks depending on the student’s academic schedule.
If there are any questions, please feel free to email or call me with your questions.
