Biorefining and Biofuels REU


View this Opportunity's Website 


Academic Level:
Undergraduate Students

Description:


The C2B2/NSF REU program offers undergraduate students the opportunity to engage in meaningful research alongside faculty, post-doctoral researchers and graduate students at each of our four partnering institutions. Students will be conducting research in one of C2B2's six thrust areas at either the University of Colorado in Boulder, Colorado State University in Ft. Collins, Colorado School of Mines in Golden or the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden.

Along with research duties, all REU's participate in educational seminars, C2B2 institution site visits, industry site visits, planned social activities and cultural experiences.

Students will learn how researchers of varying disciplines at all four sites collaborate to solve biofuel and biorefining challenges. This program provides the students a rich and diverse ten week experience within the beautiful backdrop of the Colorado Rocky Mountains.
