View this Opportunity's Website 


Academic Level:
Undergraduate Students

Description:
This REU Site program is a collaborative effort between Texas A&M University (TAMU) and the University of North Texas (UNT). The theme of the proposed site is energy and combustion research. Specific topics include alternative fuels combustion, solar cells, propellants and energetic materials, biodiesel fuels, and laser diagnostic development, among others. A unique aspect of this program is that students will be encouraged to participate in the program again in the following summer. This REU Site program will also allow 4 undergraduate students each year to participate in year-round, part-time research experiences 2 at TAMU and 2 at UNT. In addition to the research activities students will be involved in educational seminars, and social activities to foster the cohort experience. During week 4 of the 10- week summer program, the undergraduate students will be required to make a 10-minute presentation about their research project and its goals to the group. At the end of the program, the students will make a final presentation to the group about the results of their projects and will prepare posters. The participants will present their posters during the last week of the program along with other REU participants from the various summer programs sponsored by NSF, TAMU, and the College of Engineering (COE).
