Through generous funding provided by the National Science Foundation, the University of Wisconsin MRSEC collaborates with the Summer Undergraduate Research Experience-Research Experience for Undergraduates (SURE-REU) program. This 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 under the direction of university faculty members and work as members of laboratory research teams. Students are exposed to other research and graduate opportunities available on campus through weekly meetings and faculty seminars.  Social activities are also available.  At the end of the program, participants present their work in a research paper and poster session. SURE is coordinated by the Graduate Engineering Research Scholars (GERS) program for minority graduate students. Students funded by the SURE program are often hosted in MRSEC faculty laboratories. This year's program runs from May 26 through August 1, 2020. For more information, visit the SURE-REU homepage.
