Participants are provided the opportunity to conduct hands-on energy research at NETL through educational programs administered by the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE). NETL’s Core Research and Development areas focus on five energy related issues:
- Chemical Engineering
- Decision Science and Analysis
- Systems Engineering and Integration
- Applied Materials Science and Engineering
- Environmental Subsurface Science
To engage these five critical issues, ORISE offers three highly competitive programs designed for all academic levels – the Professional Internship Program (PIP) (for undergraduate or graduate students in good standing at a regionally accredited college/university, or a post-baccalaureate within one year of graduation), the Postgraduate Research Program (PGRP) (for graduates who received their master’s degree within the last three years, or doctorate within the last five years.), and the Faculty Research Participation Program (FRP) (for full-time regular permanent faculty member at an accredited college/university with a research interest in NETL core R&D areas).
