Pramod Rajan, graduate student in mechanical engineering, has been selected for a summer internship with the John Welch Global Research and Technology Center in Bangalore, India. He will be joining a select group of interns chosen from top engineering schools in the United States, India and other countries. Rajan will study with world renowned researchers and receive a stipend to cover his local expenses and travel. This is the first time an Auburn student has been selected for the program.

"This opportunity was only possible because of the international relationships we have developed through the years," said P.K. Raju, a professor in mechanical engineering and Rajan's advisor. "We hope we can use Rajan's internship to teach other students about global design and related research issues."
