NEES Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) 2011 Applications Open
Six NEES equipment sites will host REU students in summer 2011: Oregon State; University of California, Los Angeles; University of California, Santa Barbara; University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign; Lehigh University, and University of Nevada, Reno. The dynamic 10-week summer research program is geared for upper division undergraduate students interested in civil, electrical or computer engineering, and other fields related to seismic risk mitigation. Students collaborate with graduate students and faculty on NEESR projects.
Candidates must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 for acceptance; NSF limits participation to U.S. citizens and permanent residents of the United States. Aspirants are asked to include personal educational data, contact information, references, background demographics, identify specific completed engineering and math courses and skill proficiency, respond to three essay questions, and rank the preferred research site out of the six participating locations. Please encourage your students to apply at REU Program Application.
