Description:
The Princeton Institute for the Science and Technology of Materials (PRISM) and the Princeton Center for Complex Materials (PCCM) are sponsoring research opportunities for undergraduates in disciplines related to Materials Science. Potential projects span a broad range of topics under the guidance of faculty from the departments of Physics, Chemistry, Molecular Biology, Chemical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, and Civil and Environmental Engineering. The research topics are chosen each year to complement the research of faculty associated with the Princeton Center for Complex Materials.

The REU program is principally focused on providing students with the opportunity to carry out research at the forefront of materials science and engineering. In addition, we provide a proactive educational program consisting of short courses and lectures, designed to introduce students to the grand challenges of materials research. Special seminars also examine the role of science and engineering in society. Lab visits to both Princeton labs and industrial labs in the area are arranged.

Those students selected for the program will receive a weekly stipend of $550/week. Princeton University housing will be available to REU participants.

We encourage applications from students of all science and engineering disciplines. Those interested in applying to the program may do so online.
