Summer Students 2017

17 July, 2017 - This summer there are 11 students working for the SFI, and they just finished their 2nd, 3rd or 4th year of their integrated masters program. The projects these students work on this summer mostly concern different aspects of aluminum production, but a few are also silicon related. Some of the soon to be 5th graders will continue their work after summer as their project assignments and possible also for their master theses.
