Description:
The Illinois MRSEC is excited to offer an NSF-sponsored Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program. Our ten week summer research program offers undergraduate students the opportunity to work closely with MRSEC faculty mentors on solving a challenging, meaningful scientific question through taking part in the interdisciplinary Illinois MRSEC research. Research topics surround the areas of magnetic materials, 2D material interfaces, and nanomanufacturing. Projects may include materials growth, characterization, engineering, modeling/simulation, and other aspects of materials research.

Both experimental and computational projects are available.

Due to the interdisciplinary nature of this research, students applying to this program can come from a variety of majors: Materials Science, Physics, Chemistry, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, or other related disciplines.
