Brooke Sarley, Zachary Crain, Wilson Perez and Jose Cotelo have been selected for the 2016 IRES US-Germany collaboration to advance research and education in materials for extreme environments.
The students are preparing for the 10-12 week summer program funded by NSF dedicated to conducting research on the mechanics of aerospace materials for extreme environments. Through partnership with the German Aerospace Center (DLR), students will gain research experience at a state-of-the-art facility in Cologne, Germany with leading industry scientists and develop professionally in an international environment. This program will be offered each summer through 2018, with the application period taking place during the fall semester.
