    It started off as a call for summer internships in the Applied Mechanics department. I think there are a total of 3 positions available. The successful applicants are awarded the internship based on merit. The interns then meet the professors they want to work with and decide on a project. In most cases, its not going to be a significant contribution given the duration of 3 months.
