Materials Research in Liquid Crystal REU


View this Opportunity's Website 


Academic Level:
Undergraduate Students

Description:
REU students in our Center participate in uncommon opportunities in cross-disciplinary research. Students are involved in an internationally recognized research program at the cutting edge of liquid crystal science and technology, immersing them in an intensively interdisciplinary research culture. This provides students with a one-of-a-kind research experience, which includes training, observation, evaluation, and feedback. Students are placed in research groups to work on a project with oversight from a lead professor, post docs, graduate students, and undergraduates. Although students are based in one department they experience the cross-disciplinary interactions of the Center. Additionally, students attend a series of faculty-lead presentations throughout the summer acquainting the students with the scope of the university's research.The LCMRC also participates in the departmental REU summer programs. This program recruits and selects students nationwide.
