The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa College of Engineering’s High Performance Computing Applications in Engineering Research Experience for Undergraduates Program (HARP) is offering ten paid summer internships to juniors and seniors majoring in engineering or natural science. To be eligible, students must have a minimum 3.0 GPA and be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. For more information and to apply, go to
Funded by the National Science Foundation, the HARP program will allow students to study computational fluid dynamics with experts in the areas of tsunami modeling, micro pin-fin arrays and whale pectoral fin modeling. Participating students will receive a weekly stipend of $425 and on-campus housing for the duration of the program. Students accepted from the neighbor islands and from the mainland will receive round-trip transportation covering their travel at the beginning and conclusion of the program, which begins on May 24, 2010 and ends on August 2, 2010.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for undergraduate students to participate in meaningful research with world-class researchers,” said Susan T. Brown, director of HARP.
