Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)
The Renewable Energy Materials Research Science and Engineering Center’s (REMRSEC) Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program invites exceptional undergraduate engineering, math, and science students to participate in a ten-week summer research program addressing fundamental materials issues related to the science and technology of renewable energy.
These highly interdisciplinary studies focus on multiple areas that are open to all materials science, engineering, physics, chemistry, mathematics, and computer science majors that will complete undergraduate degrees in December 2014 or later.

Jan Grovogui - 2013 REU Student
Summer 2013 REU student, Jann Grovogui, presented his REU research at the National Society of Black Engineers' 2013 Fall Regional Conference. His poster, found here, tied for first place. He will be going to the NSBE National Convention during the spring of 2014.
Mr. Grovogui also received first place for his poster at the Pittsburgh American Society of Metals Chapter's Young Member's Night. Congratulations Jann!!
Kelsey Kawaguchi - 2012 REU Student
The video link features 2012 REU student Kelsey Kawaguchi who worked with Dr. Cynthia Howell, Dr. Junko Munakata Marr, and Dr. Carl Mitcham on a project titled: "Renewable Energy and Climate Change Education". Kelsey began her college studies in mechanical engineering at Kapi'olani Community College in Honolulu, then transferred to the University of Hawai"i Manoa.
REU provides students an interactive, encouraging, and multi-level research experience to draw upon when making decisions about advanced education and future careers in renewable energy.
