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.

Chuck Stone, REMRSEC REU Director,was recently named a Fellow of the American Association of Physics Teachers. Quoting from the AAPT award Letter:
"Fellowship is a distinct honor signifying recognition by one's professional peers and is awarded to individuals who have made an exceptional contribution to AAPT's mission to enhance the understanding and appreciation of physics through teaching."
Jann 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!!
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.
