Science of Extreme Environments Research Institute (SEERI)

The Science of Extreme Environments Research Institute (SEERI) provides undergraduate and graduate students with the opportunity to gain experience in the areas of radiation effects sciences, pulsed-power engineering, and high-energy density sciences. Students work directly with Sandia scientists and engineers to conduct research on a focused project.

Potential projects available for student interns include:

Past SEERI student projects include:

The learning experience is supplemented with technical talks and tours to show students the broad range of engineering and scientific disciplines represented at Sandia.

Student Interns are provided the opportunity to present their work to their peers and the Sandia scientific community at the end of their summer term. In some cases students are provided the opportunity to present their work at professional conferences.
