Cornell/Education Programs at CCMR

Career Advancement Program for Engineers and Scientists (CAPES)


The CCMR Career Advancement Program for Engineers and Scientists (CCMR CAPES) is designed to improve the competitiveness of Cornell graduate students and postdoctoral scholars entering the workforce, in part by providing training in the important "real-world" skills that are often overlooked in traditional graduate programs, such as public speaking, proposal writing, and effective interview techniques. The CAPES program will also give students a realistic and unbiased view of academic and non-academic career opportunities.


Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)

Summer Research at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York

2017 REU dates: Monday, June 5 -Friday, August 11

The Cornell Center for Materials Research is offering a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) in 2017. Students will have the opportunity to work directly with faculty on interdisciplinary materials research projects involving chemistry, physics, materials science, and engineering disciplines. Students will also participate in an organized program of lectures, laboratory visits and a variety of recreational activities.

The 10-week program takes place on Cornell’s Ithaca campus and includes: a stipend valued at $4,400; housing in a Cornell University dorm; and additional travel funds for non-CU students.

  • REU is open to current undergraduates who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
  • Selection is based on academic standing and faculty recommendations.
  • Minority and female candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.
  • All chemistry, physics, and engineering majors are welcome to apply.
  • Housing is provided; meals are not included.
  • The CCMR REU Program uses a rolling admission process. The earlier your application is completed, the better your chance for acceptance.

Support for the REU program is provided by the NSF MRSEC program (DMR-1120296) and the REU Site program (DMR-1063059).
