Description:
The Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at Texas A&M University offers undergraduate students an opportunity to participate in ongoing research with faculty members. The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) spans 10 weeks and involves undergraduate students from Texas A&M University as well as students from other colleges and universities. The program focuses on research topics related to smart energy and smart systems. REU students will participate in developing the next generation of algorithms, protocols and prototype technologies leveraging advances in intelligent signal processing, computation, microelectronics and nanoscale device synthesis. Electrical & computer engineering faculty members will serve as mentors for REU students. This year’s program will involve approximately 10 students.

During the summer research experiences, participants work closely with faculty members and graduate students on current research projects, are exposed to lab and facility tours, participate in ethics seminars, attend seminars on graduate school and GRE review sessions, and present a poster of their research experience at a symposium held at the end of the program.
