Undergraduate Research Opportunities

Summer Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)

The Summer REU program offers a research opportunity to undergraduate students 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 NC State, learning different aspects of university research, and presenting their work at symposia. We anticipate the 2021 summer program will be virtual depending on COVID policies set forth by NC State University. The program runs from May 24 – July 30, 2021.

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

A stipend is paid for the summer research experience. If we are able to offer an in-person 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.

NC State Renewable Electric Energy Systems Concentration

The Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at NC State offers an undergraduate concentration in Renewable Electric Energy Systems (REES) within the Bachelor of Science Electrical Engineering degree program.┬áThe REES concentration addresses the need to develop new technologies that can harvest the geographically distributed renewable energy such as solar and wind efficiently; and create “smart” electric power systems capable of integrating geographically distributed renewable energy based generators.┬áStudents enrolled in REES receive training in renewable energy, power systems, power electronics and design of electromechanical systems.
