We are seeking innovative, sustainability-minded, engineering and science undergraduates to participate in an 8-week paid summer program that focuses on developing sustainable, biologically controlled, and biologically inspired solutions in hazard mitigation, environmental protection and restoration, infrastructure construction, and subsurface exploration and excavation.

The Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program at the Center for Bio-mediated and Bio-inspired Geotechnics (CBBG) will immerse participants in technical research and expose them to the graduate school experience, specifically within the scope of the CBBG. Scholars are provided with a mentored research experience, participate in personal/professional development, enrichment activities, and invited to present a poster based on biogeotechnical engineering research at the CBBG Annual Meeting in the fall.

The program will be offered at all four CBBG universities (travel and housing provided):

•Arizona State University,

•Georgia Institute of Technology,

•New Mexico State University, and

•University of California, Davis.

Additional information and instructions to apply are on our website!
