The Engineer Development Program (EDP) stands as a shining example of USRI's continual
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 offer
hand on experience working at the Research institute in Stillwater. Students 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.
This program not only gives high school students practical first hand knowledge but
hands on experience and published research making them highly qualified candidates
to any collegiate engineering program.
