Material Advantage

Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Program at the Colorado School of Mines

Advanced Metallurgical Design for Transportation, Infrastructure, and Energy
Dates: May 23 – July 29, 2011

The Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Department at the Colorado School of Mines is hosting an NSF REU site program dedicated to physical metallurgy research, an area that continues to be fundamental to critical national needs in transportation, infrastructure, and energy. Specifically, our REU program will focus on processing-structure-property relationships of ferrous alloys, non-ferrous alloys, modern welding and joining technologies, and solidification. The Materials Reliability Division at NIST-Boulder will also collaborate on 2 projects and will offer both their research facilities and mentorship to the students.

Visit the REU site for more information and to apply.  Contact Prof. Kip Findley or Prof. Mike Kaufman if you have any questions.
