REU in Microelectronics and Photonics (microEP)

View this Opportunity's Website 

Academic Level:
Undergraduate Students

This REU program at the University of Arkansas will be hosted by the interdisciplinary Microelectronics-Photonics (microEP) graduate program, a program started through a partnership between the College of Engineering and the Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences in 1998. This 10-week program is designed to: 1) provide undergraduate participants with an understanding and training of basic concepts in micro to nanoscale materials and processing, with emphasis on enabling new devices technologies; 2) develop the ability to design, analyze, and simulate nanostructures and devices; 3) prepare students with the tools they need to carry out effective research, including personnel skills such as team work, communication and organization skills; and 4) deliver the experience needed to encourage participants' future interest in developing economically feasible and innovative applications of nanoscale engineering. During the 10-week period, a one credit-hour Ethics course will be conducted. The course will be available for credit to REU students, and will also be attended by microEP graduate students for graduate credit.
