Summer Research in MSE

Undergraduate student David Kim (MSE 1T2) shares his summer research experience involving nanotechnology from Ontario’s great outdoors

August 17, 2011

For some, the summer is a chance to catch up on sleep or travel. However, for hundreds of undergraduates in the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering, this summer was a chance to experience life in the lab.

Under the supervision of Professor Uwe Erb and nanOntario program manager, Catherine Chan (MSE 0T8+PEY, MASc 1T1), Year 3 MSE undergraduate student David Kim (MSE 1T2) and his teammates undertook summer research projects within the nanOntario Youth Outreach Program, preparing bio-inspired nanomaterials samples in preparation for this year’s outreach theme, Structural Colour.

Many of the results were presented at the Undergraduate Engineering Research Day (UnERD) on August 17, 2011. Check out David’s video below and five other undergraduate research areas in the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering at the University of Toronto.
