This year, eleven students from the Petroleum Institute of Abu Dhabi, UAE (PI) were selected to participate in the Energy Education and Research Colaboration (EERC) Summer Internship Program. The aims of the program are to provide students with valuable research and engineering skills through working on actual EERC and other UMD research projects, to give them experience collaborating with students and professionals from diverse backgrounds, to encourage them to pursue graduate education, and to expose them to a variety of cultural experiences through travel abroad.

In between sessions in the lab, they took trips to Baltimore’s Wheelabrator waste-to-energy facility to see a clean-energy plant in action and to Boston, to visit the world-renowned MIT. They also took in the sights of nearby Washington D.C. and visited the nuclear reactor lab at UMD.

As the student projects are described in the report, the second year of this program was highly successful, and we anticipate many more years of this fruitful exchange of students and ideas.
