Description:
The NanoScience and MicroSystems REU held at the University of New Mexico is a 10-week summer research program for students majoring in Materials Science and Engineering, Chemical, Biomedical, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, Chemistry, Physics and Biochemistry.

Spend your summer at The University of New Mexico performing cutting-edge research in world-class laboratories. Focus on an in-depth research project while exploring multidisciplinary research topics and honing your science communication skills.

Participants are part of a large, diverse research community through organized and informal interactions with students, mentors, and faculty. We provide a focused effort for mentoring and training undergraduates in several exciting branches of science and engineering, including biomaterials, materials science, nanotechnology, robotics, computer science, and energy and the environment.

The NSMS REU program pays for the majority of student expenses - travel (up to $600), on-campus housing, a competitive $5,000 stipend, the cost of most activities - and focuses on the development of strong student-mentor relationships as well as laboratory and research skills. The program offers a range of recreational activities and opportunities to experience New Mexico.

The NSMS REU Program has projects ideal for students interested in nanotechnology and materials science. Projects generally fall into three major areas:

•Nanoscience of Biosystems

•Nanomaterials for Energy Conversion

•Microsystems
