There’s an interesting article about two Nanotechnology Engineering co-op students who spent a work term doing stem cell research, an area I don’t work in but like to follow when I get a chance. It’s all the more interesting, because they were working with a Professor at the University of California, Irvine campus. What a great place for an undergrad student to be!
At the risk of repeating myself many times in future posts, I’m frequently amazed and impressed by the opportunities that our students have, if they’re motivated and adventurous enough to take advantage of them (which many clearly are). And this is certainly not the first time I’ve seen co-op students spending a work term in research labs at other universities. The article sidebar also gives another example from Harvard/MIT. An odd situation in some ways, if you think about it.
