Summer Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)

The Summer REU program offers a research opportunity to domestic undergraduates from universities outside of the Center partnerships who are majoring in electrical and computer engineering, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, materials science engineering, computer science and related fields. The undergraduate student will spend 10 weeks during the summer conducting research at one of the Center's five partner universities, learning different aspects of university research, and presenting their work at symposia.

This program is open to U.S Citizens and permanent residents only. Women and members of under-represented minority population are encouraged to apply.

A $4,000 stipend is paid for the summer research experience. On-campus housing will be provided and up to $500 for travel reimbursement for those students arriving outside of a 50 mile radius of the host university.

Applications for Summer 2016 will be accepted until February 26th, 2016. Please submit an application by clicking here. In addition to the application, students are required to submit:

  • A letter of interest indicating an understanding of the FREEDM system and mission, an explanation of the student's future goals, and describe how their past experiences and this research opportunity would help obtain those goals,
  • An unofficial transcript, and
  • A letter of recommendation

**New in 2016 NC State undergraduate students majoring in Electrical and Computer Engineering may apply to the summer REU program.  There are a limited number of research opportunities available.  Please follow the guidelines for the Summer REU program.
