A Celebration of Science
The Research Experience for Undergraduates, or REU for short, is a program funded by the National Science Foundation to provide summer research opportunities for students in the STEM fields at the University. More than 80 undergraduates from the College of Arts and Sciences, as well as universities and colleges around the country, presented the results of their research recently at a poster session held in the grand Milton Atrium in the Life Sciences Complex.
The event also included the presentations of two exchange students hailing from Graz University of Technology, Austria.
Karin Ruhlandt, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences and Distinguished Professor of Chemistry, says this event is a true celebration of science and engineering at the University.
“For many of these undergraduate students, this is the first time they have ever done extended research with a faculty member,” explains Ruhlandt. “ It allows them to get a taste of what graduate-level research would be like.”
