The Northwest Leader in National Science Foundation-Funded Undergraduate Research
The National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program helps students learn what the world of academia and research will really be like. Unlike in classrooms or in their labs, students who do research learn that there is no right or easy answer.
They gain ownership in an individual project and are given freedom to explore tangents.
Students participating in REU receive a stipend as well as support through on-campus housing and travel expenses while having the opportunity to participate in a faculty-directed research project.
REU Programs and Other Research Opportunities
- School of Mechanical and Material Engineering’s REU Programs Characterization of Advanced Materials and Introduction to Multiscale Engineering.
- School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science’s REU Program.
- Laboratory for Atmospheric Research’s Research Opportunities.
Senior Design Projects
As an undergraduate, you can participate in a senior design project, providing opportunity to interact with professionals in the engineering field. The project provides sponsorship or interaction with industry partners and involves teamwork and hands-on experience, often with students from different disciplines.
Especially for Freshmen!
