Engineering Summer Research – Texas A&M University

The Dwight Look College of Engineering at Texas A&M University invites students from your program to apply for the 2012 Undergraduate Summer Research Grant (USRG) program. This program is funded by the college and modeled after the NSF Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU). USRG and REU students from engineering and across the university interact at various social and academic events. The program description and application can be found at We encourage your students to apply soon as the deadline is Wednesday, February 8, 2012.

During this summer research experience, participants work closely with faculty members on current or individual research projects, attend development and GRE workshops, make a formal poster presentation of their research experience, and submit a final written report describing the results of their research.

To participate in the program, students should have:

1. Interest in and a desire to actively participate in ongoing or individual research projects

2. Minimum 3.25 cumulative GPA

3. Be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident

4. Major in engineering or related science or math curriculum

5. Completed sophomore year (at least 60 hours) by the end of Spring 2012

6. Plan to graduate no sooner than December 2012

Each participant will receive a $5,000 scholarship for support during the ten weeks. The program will also pay tuition and fees for one credit hour of a required independent study/research; provide housing (or housing allowance); and pay up to $400 for travel expenses for non-TAMU participants.

If you or your students have any questions about the program or application process, please contact Matthew Pariyothorn at or 979-845-7200
