The School of Computer, Mathematical and Natural Sciences (SCMNS) houses five academic departments (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science) and offers a variety of academic programs within these disciplines. SCMNS also offers students eight undergraduate programs, five graduate programs, four research programs; three research centers; and two all-encompassing student support programs. SCMNS also houses two professional programs that fully equip students for careers in medical technology and actuarial science. Please check the webpage of each department and contact the relevant department chair and/or Dean's office for more information.
SCMNS Associate Dean and Professor Gaston N'Guerekata is featured in an African magazine.
SCMNS introduces "Extreme Science Internships: A joint program of Morgan State University and the Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute at Johns Hopkins University"
The Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute at the Johns Hopkins University will provide an estimated $100,000 per year thru 2016 to Morgan State University to establish and run the Extreme Science Internships (ESI) program. This program provides funds for selected Morgan State University undergraduates to spend 8-15 weeks working at any of the participating research universities, the Army Research Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and companies listed below. Each ESI must be focused on research related to the Center for Materials in Extreme Dynamic Environments managed by HEMI (www.cmede.hemi.edu).
In addition to the research experiences and knowledge gained through this program, ESI students will have the opportunity to develop invaluable connections with practicing scientists and engineers. They will build networks and relationships that are expected to provide job opportunities with the companies and access to graduate degree programs at the participating institutions.
Application process (Application form is available here)
Morgan State undergraduates may apply for ESI support through the ESI office at Morgan State University, reporting to Professor Alvin Kennedy, Dean of the School of Computer Science, Natural Sciences, & Mathematics. The deadline for applications will be defined by the ESI office.
