Summer Internship Program for Community College of Philadelphia Students
The Singh Center and Community College of Philadelphia (CCP) are partnering to offer a paid summer internship opportunity for CCP students. Interns work for 20 hours per week during the 14-week internship. The application process is administered by CCP.
At the Singh Center, interns work in the Quattrone Nanofabrication Facility, or “cleanroom.” They learn the basics of nanofabrication through hands-on training on fabrication methods and cleanroom equipment operation and maintenance. The interns each select a project for the summer. Through these projects, the interns learn relevant background material, along with nano fabrication techniques needed for their specific projects (e.g., energy generation and solar cells, nano-bio applications and microfluidics, semiconductor chips for modern electronics).
This program’s first cohort started May 16, 2022. Interns Colin Bakum, Michael Geraghty and Anton McFadden describe some of their summer experiences in short videos. Images taken during their internship can be seen here.
