Solid State Devices – Summer Undergraduate Research Experience

By John PeponisComments Off on Solid State Devices – Summer Undergraduate Research Experience

The Holcombe Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at Clemson University is seeking applicants for a summer Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program. This NSF funded program is entitled: “REU Site: Solid-State Devices for Electronics, Photonics, and Magnetics Technology”. The REU supports up to 10 summer students, with one to four semesters remaining in their undergraduate programs, to become involved with a faculty member and graduate students for a 10 week research experience at Clemson. The program is open to undergraduate students in Electrical and Computer Engineering, Materials Science, Bioengineering, and Physics. Closely related disciplines may also be considered. The program provides summer housing on campus for the students and pays a generous stipend.

A flyer describing the program can be found here, with a link to the REU Program Website. Interested students can apply from this site.

2018 Program Start date: May 21, 2018 End date: July 27, 2018
Priority application deadline: March 2, 2018

Micro and nanofabrication of solid-state devices are rapidly becoming the key drivers of interdisciplinary research in emerging fields such as nanoelectronics, nanophotonics, nanomechanics, nanophysics, and biophysics. Such technology is a critical component of modern economic development, and leadership in research is a key to sustained US economic competitiveness. One of the greatest challenges in maintaining that leadership is the limited number of undergraduates from US engineering programs who pursue graduate studies in solid-state devices and the related topics of materials and device processing. The Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (“the SURE program”) in Solid-State Devices for Electronics, Photonics, and Magnetics Technology was created to address this need.
