Nanotechnology and Materials Systems
Program Dates: June 3 - August 9, 2013
The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) and Undergraduate Student Research Grant (USRG) programs span 10 weeks in the summer and involve students from the aerospace engineering department, as well as students from other colleges and universities. Students work closely with graduate students and faculty members on current research projects, attend presentation skills workshops, make a formal poster presentation of their research experience at the end of the program and submit a final written report describing the results of their research. Students are given a stipend for their time in REU, as well as a housing allowance and tuition for one credit hour of an independent study.
The primary goal for both the REU and USRG programs is to increase interest in research and continuing on to graduate studies in portions of the undergraduate population that may not be considering it.
- To emphasize materials research across the multiple physical scales, nano through systems level.
- For students conducting research at the nano-level to appreciate the impact on system design, and students working on the macro-system level to appreciate the need to consider the nano-scale.
- To expose students to the concepts of top-down and bottom-up design of engineering systems.
