This year, the programs will run from May 2013 to August 2013 (exact dates forthcoming). Participants will spend 10 weeks conducting research in an area of engineering, physics, chemistry, science education or public policy. Students will also be exposed to other research available on campus through seminars, tours and academic and social events.

The Summer Undergraduate Research Experience-Research Experience for Undergraduates (SURE-REU) program provides students with opportunities that build on their interest in science and engineering careers. Participating students conduct a ten-week research project in an area of engineering or the physical sciences under the direction of university faculty members and work as members of laboratory research teams. Students are exposed to other research available on campus through weekly meetings and faculty seminars, and have opportunities to visit industry laboratories. Planned social activities are also available. At the end of the program, participants present their work in an open seminar.
