NSF REU Opportunity: Smart Energy and Smart Systems

Research Experiences for Undergraduates–
Smart Energy and Smart Systems: Enabling the Future through Electrical and Computer Engineering

The Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at Texas A&M University offers undergraduate students a unique opportunity to participate in cutting-edge research with faculty members on topics of smart grid and smart energy systems.

The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) spans 10 weeks (May 29, 2012 – Aug 3, 2012). REU students will participate in developing the next generation of prototype technologies, protocols and algorithms leveraging advances in intelligent signal processing, computation, microelectronics and nanoscale device synthesis. Electrical & computer engineering faculty members will serve as mentors for REU students.

This year’s program will involve approximately 10 students. During the summer research experiences, participants work closely with faculty members and graduate students on current research projects, are exposed to lab and facility tours, participate in ethics seminars, attend seminars on graduate school and GRE review sessions, and present a poster of their research experience at a symposium held at the end of the program.

Highlights of this 10-week Program:

* Paid summer research experience ($5000 stipend + housing + travel allowance)
* One-on-one interactions with award-winning faculty mentors
* Inspiring ethics seminars and state-of-the-art lab tours
* Information sessions on graduate school and GRE preparation
* Opportunity to improve communication and presentation skills
* Make long-lasting friendships with faculty and other student participants
