The multidisciplinary Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program at Stony Brook University has a focus on the application of nanotechnology and nanomaterials to societal needs in health, energy, and the environment. The program is a summer research experience for academically talented undergraduates, qualified, motivated, and interested in the nanotechnology field.
REU Site: Nanotechnology for Health, Energy and the Environmentis an opportunity for qualified, academically talented and motivated undergraduates interested in eventually pursuing their doctoral degree in a Science, Technology, Engineering or Math (STEM) discipline at Stony Brook University. The program gives students an intensive research experience with leading researchers in the field.
Participants will work with a faculty mentor and become fully integrated into active research groups using state-of-the-art facilities. Participants will have the opportunity to work closely with their faculty mentor, attend seminars on Research Methods and Graduate School Preparation, participate in workshops and present their research results at the REU Symposium and Closing Ceremony at the completion of the program.
