NSF Research Experience for Undergraduates Site: Advanced Processing and Materials Characterization


View this Opportunity's Website 


Academic Level:
Undergraduates - Sophomore
Undergraduates - Junior

Description:
10-week summer research experience for undergraduates focused on advanced processing and materials characterization. The projects are focused on a variety of different topics within Materials Science and Engineering. Undergraduate students will be matched with faculty mentors. Our faculty mentors are engaged in diverse research areas that include biomaterials, structural materials, electronic materials, materials processing, materials characterization, and materials modeling. The mentoring faculty will make sure that the students are exposed to all four pillars of materials science (design-processing-structure-property) even if, in their relatively short time period at UNT, they will probably focus on one or two of these pillars. In addition, the students will be involved in various other social, cultural, and educational activities.
