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

Description:
WHCIAN is the Center for Integrated Access Networks, which is a ten-university Engineering Research Center (ERC) funded by NSF. REU students participate in research that is creating ultra-broadband communication networks using photonics to create a technological revolution in internet access speeds. The benefits to participating in an REU at an ERC is the opportunity to network with faculty across the ERC for future research opportunities, including the possibility of future graduate school positions.

This opportunity is offered at University of Arizona, UC San Diego, UC Berkeley, and Columbia University. A stipend of $5,000 is available. Travel and Housing are not offered and are responsibilities of the participating student.

Who should apply?

Undergraduates of all levels majoring in optics, optical engineering, electrical engineering, physics, math, computer science, or related fields. Students from underrepresented minority groups and women are strongly encouraged to apply.
