CIMM Research Experience for Undergraduates

The Consortium for Innovation in Manufacturing and Materials (CIMM) Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) project is a nine- or ten-week summer program where students work collaboratively on topics related to advanced manufacturing and materials research. CIMM research addresses the scientific and technological barriers relevant to two broad classes of manufacturing methods: (1) Multi-scale forming and replication for high-throughput manufacturing and (2) 3-D Laser-based Printing for adaptive manufacturing. Students will be integrated into ongoing research projects in state of the art facilities in an environment of peer and interinstitutional mentoring and collaboration.

Each student will receive a $500/week stipend, free housing in university residence halls (if needed), and up to $400 travel expense reimbursement. For more information and to apply, please visit the website below. The deadline to apply is February 1, 2018.
