Summer School for the University of California (03/09/2015)
During the Summer of 2015 the UCD School of Physics hosted 82 undergraduates from different campuses of the University of California for an 8-week intensive programme of Physics. The course, which meets the undergraduate requirement for physics in programmes in the Life Sciences, comprised of lectures, tutorials, laboratories and office hours with academic staff. Many of the students on the course are aiming to progress to graduate programmes in Medicine, Veterinary Medicine, Neuroscience and Biochemistry, among others. We look forward to hosting the UC programme in 2016 at the O’Brien Centre for Science.
UCD School of Physics held its annual Summer Internship Poster Competition yesterday, 30th July 2015. The Internship program is run every year in the School and this year thirteen students worked on projects over the summer. This year we were delighted to welcome Interns from the USA and India, alongside a host of Irish university undergraduate students.
