Self-Directed Study Internship

Description: This unpaid internship is designed around the student’s course of study and research interests. This internship is focused around student learning and growth, and can be an ideal opportunity for visiting researchers. One internship example is the learning of a new skill, such as programming, use of a software package, or prototype fabrication. Another example is researching a specific academic area, such as bipedal balance algorithms, actuator design, or neural networks. Often, an internship can be part of the student’s degree program and receive course credit or have the research topic turn into a bachelor’s or master’s thesis, or become part of a doctoral dissertation. For this internship, if you have an idea or area of interest, be it programming, mechanical design, or algorithm development, we may be able to provide the facilities and guidance to help you be successful in your pursuits.

Current areas of interest include but are not limited to multi-contact locomotion planning, perception for localization and locomotion planning, high-speed autonomous behaviors, collaborative manipulation, and virtual reality for operator interfaces.

Requirements: Have obtained or currently pursuing a degree in Engineering, Science, or related STEM field. A fundamental knowledge of programming is highly recommended.

Duration: between 3-9 months.

Compensation: unpaid.
