Students at UAH will gain real-world experience through internships and the university will do cooperative research with meteorological company Baron Services Inc. following the signing of a memorandum of understanding on Friday. "This is an excellent opportunity for UAH students to work with Baron Services, a world leader in radar remote sensing," said Dr. Sundar Christopher, professor and chairman of the UAH Dept. of Atmospheric Science and associate director of the Earth System Science Center. "This will further strengthen research collaborations between our two organizations." UAH internship candidates will be selected by a faculty liaison in cooperation with Baron Services, and faculty may participate as resource persons in the internship on a limited basis. Select Baron Services employees will collaborate in developing student assignments and training activities and will instruct, evaluate and supervise the student. Baron Services will report student progress and performance to UAH.
