CEID is pleased to announce the 2017 Engineering, Innovation, and Design Summer Fellowship for Yale Undergraduates.  Summer Fellows will pursue student-driven projects in teams at the CEID.  Fellows will receive a competitive stipend, a modest budget for supplies, access to equipment and materials, and project mentoring.  The CEID Summer Fellows program has been a springboard for many of the former Fellows who have since pursued research, employment and entrepreneurial opportunities directly related to their design project experiences.

CEID Summer Fellows will work in project teams of two to four.  The CEID aims to support a diverse portfolio of innovative projects, consistent with the CEID’s mission and values.  In previous years fellowship teams pursued opportunities in biotech, aerospace, telecommunications, medical devices, and consumer products.

CEID Summer Fellows will come from a variety of majors, class years and backgrounds.  Previous fellows included freshmen through seniors from majors such as applied math, art, engineering, physics, and political science.

You can take a look at last year's fellows here:

"From Electric Motors to Patient-Based Apps- The 2016 Summer Fellows are Ready to Innovate"

"2016 CEID Fellows Present Their Final Innovations"

"Develop an 'EZ' Ice Rink Solution"

"2016 CEID Fellows Make Telemedicine App to Improve Life After Transplants"

"From CEID Fellows, Security and Convenience in a Wearable Device"

CEID Summer Fellows will be expected to work at the CEID for a minimum of 40 hours per week from May 30 through August 4. A few hours per week will be spent in formal project mentoring and professional development activities; the rest of the time will be focused on project work.  It is expected that the scale of the projects will be such that they can be completed within the CEID.  Each project team will be required to write a final report and present their
results at a CEID event during the 2017-2018 academic year. 

The deadline to apply is January 26th, 2017

Initial decisions will be announced on February 24, 2017.
