  • University of Arkansas - Separations and Commercialization ChemE REU

    Application Deadline: Tuesday, February 28, 2023

    Majors: chemical engineering, bioengineering, biology, chemistry, materials science, physics, or related majors are welcome to apply!

    The program runs from May 22, 2023- July 28, 2023. 

    The Separations & Commercialization REU program will offer research experiences in laboratories that are working towards the goals of improving separation efficiency and reducing separation processing costs to a diverse group of undergraduate students. Participants will interact with faculty and graduate students to plan and execute a 10-week research project. A unique component of this REU program is the commercialization assessment training (CAT) series that will prepare them to think about the potential commercialization of traditional hypothesis-driven research early in the process. Participants will have the opportunity to interact with industry leaders in the separation field through the CAT series, industrial mentorships, as well as industrial site visits locally and in Texas.


  • Summer research: Center for Translational Applications of Nanoscale Multiferroic Systems (TANMS)

    Summer Research Experience for Undergraduates at UCLA, Cornell, CSUN, UCB

    The Center for Translational Applications of Nanoscale Multiferroic Systems (TANMS) offers a 10-week, paid summer research experience for undergraduates at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), University of California, Berkeley (UCB), Cornell University, and the California State University at Northridge (CSUN).  TANMS works to engineer a revolution in miniature electromagnetic electronics through development of a new class of nanoscale multiferroic materials.  TANMS' research plan follows a top-down strategy where testbed systems level goals guide three engineering technology research thrusts motivating two fundamental research thrusts.  The research program relies on system level metrics defined by 3 testbed demonstration modules, i.e. a) memory, b) antenna, and c) motor. These three testbeds rely on similar multiferroic concepts while also representing electromagnetic devices that maximize this program's impact on our society.

    The TANMS REU stands out in the integration of entrepreneurial experience with scientific research.  Students currently pursuing an undergraduate degree in  engineering who are US citizens or permanent residents are eligible. The program dates for summer 2014 will be June 23 through August 29; applications are due April 15, 2014. Participants are paid a stipend and on-campus housing is provided.
