Undergraduates majoring in Chemistry, Physics, Chemical Engineering, Electrical& Computer Engineering, Polymer Science & Engineering, and Mechanical & Industrial Engineering, and underrepresented minority student are especially encouraged to apply.
The program runs for 10 weeks, June 1 – Aug 7, 2010. We provide a $3400 stipend and free travel to campus and housing in our newest dormitory. Students also participate in additional outside-the-lab academic and social activities with other REU students on campus.
In the past, the program has been an excellent way for students to gain first-time lab experience in cutting-edge research, expand their knowledge in a chosen science/engineering discipline, and/or explore interests in new areas of
Space is limited so apply as soon as possible — the deadline is Feb 28, 2010.
