Summer REU Program
The Center for High-rate Nanomanufacturing (CHN) will host approximately 25 students for the 2011 Summer Research Experience for Undergraduates program. The summer REU program includes 10 weeks of CHN-related research supervised by faculty at one of CHN’s partner institutions. Weekly meetings of all REU students offer professional development activities, video conferences with the partner universities, guest lecturers, and workshops on educating the general public at the Boston Museum of Science.
The goals of the REU program are:
· Increasing the awareness of the importance of science and technology;
· Motivating students, particularly women and under-represented minorities, to become interested in and better prepared for careers in science, math, engineering, and technology;
· To prepare students for careers in research and in manufacturing related to nanotechnology.
The students are in the laboratories from early June to mid-August. Students, as individuals or in collaboration with other undergraduates, conduct research under the guidance of their advisors, other professors, graduate students, and post-doctoral researchers. Additionally, the student participates in a CHN joint-University professional development seminars, tours, and social activities.
