The School of Polymers and High Performance Materials (SPHPM) at the University of Southern Mississippi (USM) was awarded the REU Site for Sustainable Aerospace and Marine Polymer Composites. Recognizing that the key to a sustainable future relies in part on the development of low weight and energy efficient materials, the SPHPM is well-positioned to achieve transformative research in the areas of polymer composite matrix development and nanostructured additives for materials property enhancement. The demand to train undergraduates to perform research in these multidisciplinary, vital research areas is a critical national need.
