Description: 

The Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program is a mechanism for integrating a broad spectrum of undergraduates into materials research, nanoscience and engineering. Many undergraduates get their first exposure to science and engineering by participating in the Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program. Each REU project is designed to involve the student in all aspects of research and has a clearly identifiable research goal at a level appropriate for undergraduate study. This program is subscribed by undergraduates from across the country. With direction from a faculty advisor and, in most cases, a postdoctoral fellow or graduate student, the REU student defines and sets up the program necessary to accomplish the ten-week summer project. A presentation of their research is made by each student at the "end-of-summer" seminar attended by Center faculty, student mentors, and fellow REU students. This rewarding activity will continue with matching funds provided by the Division of Engineering and Applied Sciences (DEAS) and Harvard College.
