2017 Interfaces and Surfaces Research Experience for Undergraduates 

Are you ready to explore materials science in the laboratory? The faculty at Clemson University believe that undergraduates can and do make important contributions to the field of materials science through their research. We also know that working in a research laboratory can be a transformative experience and help current undergraduates decide if attending graduate school is the right option for them.

This program (Interfaces and Surfaces) accepts around ten students every summer to fabricate and characterize new materials and material systems. The projects offered include either experimental or computational experiences. During the ten-week program, participants will conduct research, practice a range of professional skills, reflect on how to achieve their career goals and experience working on diverse teams.

Deadline to apply is February 15, 2017.  For more information, including research projects and how to apply, see https://cecas.clemson.edu/mse-reu/ or contact program director Dr. Marian (Molly) Kennedy.

This program is supported by The National Science Foundation (DMR- 1460863).
