The program will begin on Sunday, May 21, 2017 and end on Friday, July 28, 2017.

In anticipation of funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) the College of Engineering at North Carolina A&T State University is seeking applications for the 2017 Engineering Modeling and Computation Research (EmCoR@NCAT) REU program. Join us and develop your skills in engineering modeling and computational research in an exciting environment!

Program activities include the following:

  • REU scholars will spend 36 hours per week on research and related instruction, and roughly 6 hours each week on outreach and team-building activities.
  • Each REU scholar will undergo a four-step process to complete the REU program: 1.) Pre-program preparation, 2.) On-site focused modeling and computation instruction, 3.) Research integrated with professional development and outreach, and, 4.) Project delivery and dissemination.
  • Networking and team-building exercises
  • End of program presentations by REU scholars and their research mentors

Each participant will receive: $5,000 stipend award, $2000 housing allocation, $800 meal allowance, and $600 for conference travel.

Applications must be submitted no later than Friday, March 3, 2017.

Overview

Join us at North Carolina A & T State University (NCAT) and develop your skills in engineering modeling and computational research, in a friendly environment !

This project will offer a ten-week summer program focused on computational models in engineering. Computer-based models or computational models are used to understand and analyze natural and engineered systems, and are indispensable in modern science and engineering.

Computational models are now widely-accepted, along with theory and experiment, as a crucial third mode of scientific research and engineering design.

The undergraduate research experience in this project provides the REU scholars with competitive skill sets valued by the computational research domain.

For the REU scholars who desire to pursue future research, this project will provide a skill set to work in a domain that is either similar to or different from their chosen target project for this REU.

A significant part of the skills acquired will be applicable to interdisciplinary research in academic, corporate, and federal laboratories.

Due to the broad applicability of computational modeling, the research experience gained, computing skills developed, and professional development provided during this research experience will prepare the students for a variety of paths to graduate education.

Students are encouraged to apply ASAP, but no later than Friday March 3, 2017.
