The Vagelos Integrated Program in Energy Research (VIPER) enrolls talented, prepared, and motivated students who are interested in energy science and engineering. VIPER students receive instruction and state-of-the-art research experiences, enabling them to pursue advanced degrees in these fields and establish high-caliber research careers as innovators.
The focus of the program is on the science and technology of alternative and efficient methods of harnessing, conversion and use of energy. The program takes advantage of existing expertise and resources within Penn’s School of Arts and Sciences, School of Engineering and Applied Science, and other schools. Students will find research opportunities in the laboratories of Pennergy – the Penn Center for Energy Innovation, and thereby contribute to Penn’s core initiatives in the area of science and technology solutions for sustainable energy.
