Academic Level:
Undergraduates - First Year
Undergraduates - Sophomore
Undergraduates - Junior
Undergraduates - Senior

Description:
Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) fellowships are awarded to undergraduates for participation in a ten-week summer program designed to provide unique research experiences, professional development, and increased awareness of materials science and engineering. Each student performs research in one of the four UMN MRSEC Interdisciplinary Research Groups (IRGs): Engineered Multiblock Polymers, Organic Optoelectronic Interfaces, Magnetic Heterostructures, and Nanoparticle-based Materials IRGs, or one of the various MRSEC Seed groups.

In addition to individual research, participants engage in numerous common activities aimed at heightening awareness of science and engineering careers and enhancing skills, including practical ones that are often overlooked, but important for professional development. This is achieved through weekly workshops and seminars throughout the progam.
