Undergraduate Research Opportunity
The NSF-DoD REU is recruiting 11 UMass Lowell students to participate in the Advanced Technologies for Hypersonic, Propulsive, Energetic, and Reusable Platforms (HYPER) program at the University of Central Flroida (UCF).
Each REU participant will receive a summer stipend of $5,000, on-campus room and board, and a travel allowance to and from Orlando.
To learn more about the program, please visit the Advanced Technologies for Hypersonic, Propulsive, Energetic, and Reusable Platforms (HYPER) program website.
This REU site addresses challenges in space travel and energy production, advancing the fundamental knowledge needed to overcome technical barriers limiting hypersonic flight, read their Advanced Technologies for Hypersonic, Propulsive, Energetic, and Reusable Platforms (HYPER) program flyer (pdf).
The 10-week program will be held next summer from May 26 – July 31, 2020. Participants will gain hands-on research training in challenges such as utilizing advanced manufacturing techniques for high-value components, integrating in-site monitoring of stress-strain evolution, developing novel methods for improved internal cooling and heat transfer effectiveness, and mitigating flutter through advanced rotor dynamic control. Many of these challenges rely on approaches that cut across disciplines and research techniques.
