Thank you for your interest in applying to VSRP internships at KAUST.
We are happy to share that our in-person internship program has restarted!
However, due to the pandemic, all VSRP applicants applying for in-person internship, must obtain and show proof of full vaccination (vaccine certificates for COVID 19) with one of the following vaccines to be processed as VSRP interns: 2 doses of Pfizer BioNTech, 2 doses of Oxford AstraZeneca, 2 doses of Moderna, or 1 dose of Johnson and Johnson’s Janssen.
We are continuing to offer Remote/Virtual internship. If you are interested in a Remote VSRP internship, please check our “Internship page” and apply to the project of your choice. You may upload a blank page in lieu of vaccination proof in your application form, and mention that you are applying for a Remote internship in your Statement of Purpose.
Investigation of nanoparticulate morphology at PPC and HCCI modes
1. A thermophoretic probe will be designed for soot collection from engines exhaust pipe.2. The nanoparticulate will be collected for morphology from different combustion mode, like HCCI, PPC, and CI.3. The distribution of particle size and number density will be investigated.4. The low octane number fuel, naphtha, will be fueled with the compression ignition engine to investigate the nanoparticulate emissions
