Texas A&M’s program offers opportunities for undergraduate students to engage in materials science research early in their undergraduate careers regardless of their majors. It also promotes success of more senior students, particularly underrepresented minority students who have already developed an interest in materials science, but would benefit from a research experience.

During the 10-week program, students will get hands-on experience in various materials synthesis and characterization techniques, different types of multifunctional materials, and materials modeling methods such as molecular dynamics to continuum scale constitutive modeling, optimization, advanced finite element-based micro-mechanics, and macroscopic finite element modeling. They will learn how research is conducted, develop experimentation and modeling skills, and learn how to conduct property characterization, analysis, testing and optimization of multifunctional materials and components. The students will be mentored by materials science and engineering faculty and a trained graduate student.

Students receive:

•a stipend of $5,000

•on-campus housing and travel support

•opportunity for an industrial visit

•GRE training sessions and professional development seminars

•opportunities for poster session with 150+ students from different REU programs
