Argonne National Laboratory

Undergraduates
"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." -Nelson Mandela

Undergrads are just beginning their journey into the world of science and engineering. Here at Argonne, we work to make the world a better place through science and innovation. We pursue discovery by pushing boundaries, challenging ourselves and each other, and stretching our abilities. This makes Argonne an excellent place for undergrads to explore and test their own ideas in science and technology.

Argonne can help undergrads grow, choose and hone their areas of interest with programs that immerse them in cutting-edge research and discovery in all areas of the Lab. Over 100 students each year participate in the various internship opportunities Argonne offers. We also hire undergraduate students for part-time and temporary assignments to provide technical support to our scientists and engineers.

Argonne hosts an annual undergraduate symposium that provides hundreds of undergraduate students opportunities to present their research and network with Argonne scientists and engineers in the same field. This kind of experience develops undergrads for the next stage in their journey.
