Each summer Masdar Institute offers a number of research internships to UAE nationals. These internships are open to UAE national undergraduate students who are upcoming university seniors and/or those graduating this year. Students interested in applying for a summer research internship must apply for a specific project. Each project has a list of tasks and a recommended academic major required for the research.

Applications are now closed. The new list of available projects for the summer 2017 term will be posted in February.
