Not all skills can be learned in a classroom setting. This is the void UT’s nearly 14-year-long partnership with Oak Ridge National Laboratory seeks to fill for UT students and graduates. Since April of 2000, UT-Battelle LLC has managed the nation’s largest open-science laboratory. Today, the university’s partnership with ORNL includes approximately 60 joint faculty members and more than 100 students working at the lab, according to its website. The students working there aren’t your typical interns, either; they do much more than paperwork and coffee running.
