Through generous funding provided by the National Science Foundation, the University of Wisconsin MRSEC hosts two undergraduate summer research programs. 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. This year's program runs from May 29th, 2007 through August 3rd, 2007. For more information, visit the SURE-REU homepage. The University of Wisconsin-Madison Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) on Nanostructured Interfaces (MRSEC) and the Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center (NSEC) on Templated Synthesis and Assembly at the Nanoscale will host a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) in Nanotechnology program from May 2014 to August 2014. Participants will spend 9 weeks conducting research in an area of engineering, physics, chemistry, science education or public policy. Students will be exposed to other research available on campus through seminars, tours and academic and social events. For more information, visit the REU in Nanotechnology home page.
