REU: Research Experiences for Undergraduates
The E3S Research Experiences for Undergraduates (E3S REU) program provides residential research internships in the laboratories of E3S faculty. Participants of this competitive merit-based program undertake cutting edge electrical engineering, material science, physics and chemistry research projects. They also have access to enrichment activities including seminars, field trips, as well as advising on graduate school programs, the application process for fellowships, and a subsidized GRE prep course. The Fall after the completion of the E3S summer internship, participants are expected to continue their Bachelor of Science or Engineering studies and eventually apply for graduate school.
