I just finished applying for summer internships this weekend. I applied to a total of 4. I decided to apply again to CISEI because of the amazing experience that I had the previous summer. I chose Germany and the Netherlands because they have some interesting research areas. Germany has some research areas that focuses on process engineering. This is really useful and worthwhile since I want to apply the things that I learn from my chemical engineering classes. On the other hand, the Netherlands have research areas that concentrate on organic and polymer chemistry. The study of polymers is becoming a very important thing to know in developing new, cost-effective, and efficient materials and products. I really hope that I can get accepted to any one of these sites so I will have another great experience. I also want to experience being in another country and be in a different culture. I also love to meet new people. I really do hope that I get in so I can have something to look forward to! And because there is a possibility that I might not get in, I also applied to other internships like RISE in UCSB.
