commitment to improving it's community and STEM education. The program teaches concepts
of basic engineering design using a pragmatic approach.
The program currently offers summer internships to high school students which provides

are organized into teams and assigned research and development projects based on current
market needs to complete over the summer with access to guidance from current engineering
students, as well as USRI's staff engineers. Students are responsible for everything
required for project completion, from design to manufacture.
