UD-UDRI Fellowship Program

Perfect Pairings

Summer Collaboration Expands Research

The UD/UDRI Summer Research Fellowship program matches School of Engineering faculty with UDRI researchers with the goal of expanding areas of research that are fundable by outside parties. Faculty lend their expertise while learning more about UDRI’s research, capabilities and personnel.
“Last year’s collaborations produced new funding proposals, papers and updated curriculum in advanced manufacturing,” said Bob Wilkens, associate dean of the School of Engineering. “We were extremely impressed by the quality of the presentations at the fall recap session.”
