This summer Bioengineering senior Emma Dando was interned with the Worchester polytechnic Institute.
Here is what she writes: Worchester Polytechnic Institute’s Virtual Internship in Biomedical Engineering (VIBE) program is an 8 week program that places students from across the country in teams of
four to research, design, develop, and present a project in a low stakes environment that encourages experimentation. The possible projects are supplied by the professors and students. In addition, the program meets three times a week for professional development,
design process meetings, and coffee and conversations. During these sessions students have the opportunity to hear from and talk with professors, industry professionals, and other guest lecturers. All sessions can be caught up with asynchronously. The program
culminates in a video pitch competition and award celebration. For more information on the Summer 2021 session:
