Industrial Attachment Students

“My internship at IMRE has given me the opportunity to apply and practice the knowledge and skills obtained during my study, as well as make use of many resources not as readily available elsewhere. It was also a truly enriching and inspiring experience to observe how researchers here are able to think outside the box to come up with simple yet elegant solutions to the many problems they inevitably encounter in their work."

    “My internship at IMRE was awesome! During the internship, I was given a chance to learn how to perform scientific experiment productively and also get to be acquainted with numerous data analysis methods. Thanks to my supervisor (Dr. Cedric Troadec), research scientists and lovely staffs in IMRE. They have always share their valuable knowledge and given me a lot of guidance. I am certain that the many skills I have acquired here will benefit me in my future career!”

"This SIP experience was an eye-opener. Unlike in school, where step-by-step instructions were given to conduct an experiment, I had to plan my own experiment in IMRE. By conducting a background search and running my own synthesis and workup procedure, I was able to understand better what I was doing."
