summer research program for undergraduates in the following areas: Mobile and Sensor
Networks, Bioinformatics, RFID Security, Learning Technologies, Robotics, Software
Systems and Architecture and the application of computer techniques to Health and Safety,
Dispute Resolution and Social Networks.
Engineering Summer Research Experience (REU) for Undergraduates
Each summer the College of Engineering sponsors a Research Experience for
Undergraduates (REU) program. This is a great way to find out if graduate study is right for you and an opportunity to learn more about the broad range of interdisciplinary research being conducted in the college
Institute for Cellular Engineering (ICE) Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU)
Understanding cellular function and manipulating cells/tissues to perform in a particular
manner is the basis for many ventures in the biomedical, biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries. The ICE REU program allows undergraduates to perform hands-on summer research, participate in a weekly seminar, and present their research to a broad cellular engineering community.
Materials Research Science & Engineering Center (MRSEC) Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU)
This program provides qualified undergraduates with an opportunity to conduct polymer
science and engineering research in a faculty-supervised laboratory within the UMass
MRSEC. Additionally, REU participants attend regular weekly meetings and special
seminars throughout the summer.
Nanotechnology Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE)
For students interested in nanotechnology, this is a great opportunity to get a head start on
an exciting career! Students participating in this ten-week summer undergraduate research
program in Nanoscale Device Development work on real, cutting-edge research projects
with faculty mentors and graduate student lab-mates.
