Internships and Directed Independent Study (DIS) courses
FAU faculty and staff will assist interested students in identifying potential internships in labs at FAU, nearby research institutes or local companies, as well as help students find mentors for Directed Independent Study courses.
Students will have the opportunity to participate in arranged tours of research institutes, biotechnology companies and related local attractions of interest.
Select faculty will be recruited to offer informal seminars to interested students on current topics in science. Plans are a weekly seminar for five weeks of each six week summer term.
