Seminars
During the course of the six-week program, Cooper Union’s recruiters and career counselors conduct seminars to prepare the interns to apply for colleges and careers in the STEM fields.  Students are also taken to a college fair where they are given a broad exposure to a variety of college choices.

Workshops:
At the end of the six-week program, students submit a technical paper detailing their research and results.  Weekly one-hour workshops will be provided for each project so that interns may learn how to write a technical paper. These workshops will allow the groups to work on their papers as the project progresses. At the conclusion of the program, interns will give an oral presentation showing the research they performed for each project to an audience of invited guests.  A workshop in oral presentation will be conducted by a professional in this area to provide training in giving such presentations.

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
