ESF Students Named for SUNY Summer Internships
Programs focus on engineering, energy and the environment, STEM
Three ESF students were selected to participate in summer research internships through the SUNY Networks of Excellence.
Mark Warfel, Donald Klaczko and Laura Wengert were among 66 students selected to participate in summer research internships in which they will conduct research alongside SUNY faculty members, gaining hands-on experience in their fields of study. The program is administered by the Research Foundation for SUNY.
Warfel, of Clinton, is a senior in ESF's landscape architecture program. Klaczko, of Camillus, is a senior in the environmental studies program. They will participate in the 4E Summer Scholars. Created by the SUNY 4E Network of Excellence, this program was created to attract undergraduates with aptitude in the sciences and engineering to participate in research related to energy and the environment.
Wengert, of Jamesville, is a freshman in the bioprocess engineering program. She will participate in the STEM Passport Program, funded by the SUNY Networks of Excellence. The STEM Passport Program places undergraduates in research positions on topics ranging from tracking software development and 3-D printing to forensic investigations and studying the eastern hellbender salamander.
Students were selected for the internships based on criteria such as faculty recommendation, academic transcripts, and a personal statement of interest.
SUNY Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher said, "The SUNY Networks of Excellence allow us to offer students unique opportunities to be on the cutting edge of new research and innovation. The research these students will be a part of has the potential to transform highly specialized fields. These unique summer internships are going to prepare SUNY students for college and career success."
"Working together with faculty on a research project can be a life-changing opportunity for students - opening their eyes to new fields, new ideas, and the potential for discovery," said Alexander N. Cartwright, SUNY provost and executive vice chancellor, and interim president of the Research Foundation for SUNY. "The summer research programs offered through the networks are part of SUNY's applied learning commitment, preparing students for success in today's global economy."
