This REU Site hosted at Texas A&M University-Kingsville and supported by the National Science Foundation's Division of Engineering Education and Centers is designed to develop and implement a model environment for multidisciplinary collaborative efforts where research and education are tightly integrated around the different facets of sustainable energy and environment research. It features a 10-week interdisciplinary team approach to mentor students on different research projects.

The proposed sustainable energy research consists of three major research areas: 1) Energy Harvesting, 2) Energy Utilization, 3) Energy Policy, Environmental and Social Impacts. At this REU site, the students are able to work in multidisciplinary research teams, receive research, educational, and career mentorship, attend weekly seminars about research, time management, professional development, technical writing, presentation skills, graduate school preparation, etc., and learn about the scientific processes and procedures required to conduct research projects.

This REU site provides $5,000 stipends, travel allowance between home and campus, additional travel support for attending conferences, meal allowance and Free on-campus housing, and amazing field trips.
