The Research Experience for Undergraduate (REU) program admits eight undergraduate students to pursue full-time research for 10 weeks at the Francis College of Engineering.
The program values diversity in participants' ethnicity, home institution and academic background and emphasizes recruiting underrepresented groups in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) fields.
A diverse faculty with engineering, chemistry and physics backgrounds serve as mentors and offer various research projects in diverse yet cohesive themes in biomedical engineering with a concentration in medical devices.
Students will participate in research, professional development and social activities and will have the opportunity to network with medical devices companies. This organized, cohesive, and vibrant program will make their experience go way beyond what could be provided by a typical research experience in a single lab.
