The innovation engine for new materials

RISE - Research Internships in Science and Engineering

The RISE Program is sponsored by the
Materials Research Laboratory
and the College of Engineering located at
the University of California, Santa Barbara

Science and engineering students from UCSB and other universities acquire research experience in a variety of exciting fields through these internships. Interns meet regularly to share their experiences and report on their progress. Our research interns often present at conferences such as at the annual Southern California Conference on Undergraduate Research.
