Academics, Academics Students who want to conduct original, inventive research while gaining hands-on experience, grow during MSOE_Сйs unique Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program. They arrive from all parts of the country with diverse university experiences, skill levels, interests and science and engineering backgrounds. Funded by the National Science Foundation, MSOE_Сйs Rapid Prototyping Consortium and the Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power, our REU program focuses on understanding and utilizing additive manufacturing and fluid power technology that cuts across many disciplines while developing skills in research methodology and communication. Note: Two REU participants for the Fluid Power area are recruited through Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power (CCEFP), funded by the National Science Foundation through the main campus: University of Minnesota. NEW to this grant: An international component for 2 of the 7 students each year_УС typically, MSOE students who already have exposure to the on-campus AM facilities_УС to spend the middle 6 weeks of the 10-week program at the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), South Africa, where they will conduct research in advanced manufacturing at the National Laser Center (NLC), closely advised by Dr. Esther Akinlabi of the University of Johannesburg, South Africa. Due to the international component, the screening of applicants will begin on February 26, 2016. Early application is highly encouraged. As part of MSOE_Сйs REU program, you_Сйll research projects advancing state-of-the-art applications in the biomedical, aerospace, architectural, manufacturing, composite, biomolecular, electro-optical, and fluid power industries. Your research will be guided by a faculty advisor with expertise in a particular research field. The interdisciplinary nature of this work opens minds and promotes creative solutions to problem solving. Hands-on access to additive manufacturing devices and fluid power laboratories, close partnerships with advisors, industry mentors and other educational institutions, paired with a creative learning environment provides you with a high probability of success in research focused on solving industrial problems through advanced manufacturing technology. Your research capabilities will increase as you explore research topics through: Explore previous research and teaching modules through the REU program. Students who have completed their sophomore year of an engineering, pre-engineering, computer science or science-based (biology, chemistry, physics, etc.) curriculum; are enrolled in a university for the fall term; are a full-time student with a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or greater; are a U.S. citizen or permanent resident of the United States; have an interest in research and in learning about additive manufacturing applications will be considered. Women, minorities and persons with disabilities are especially encouraged to apply.л_Accepted candidates will participate 40 hours per week for the 10 week session. All students receive a stipend and travel allowance. On-campus room and board is provided.
