Summer 2018 ReNUWIt REU program

The National Science Foundation (NSF)-funded Engineering Research Center (ERC) for Re-inventing the Nation’s Urban Water Infrastructure (ReNUWIt) is now accepting applications for its Summer 2018 Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Program. Participants will conduct mentored research in
ReNUWIt faculty lab groups at Colorado School of Mines, New Mexico State University, Stanford University, and University of California at Berkeley.Application deadline: February 10, 2018

Please direct interested undergraduates to our website (https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Frenuwit.org%2Feducation%2Freu-program%2F&data=02%7C01%7Caudra.n.morse%40TTU.EDU%7C15e985cd3e0848304df908d52b99ec6f%7C178a51bf8b2049ffb65556245d5c173c%7C0%7C0%7C636462863000669351&sdata=MNTf%2Bf1vftgk0lsTD82kyWvRmr2ui%2BAi5NIWKK8yDiY%3D&reserved=0) to learn more and apply.

Funding for Students to Attend NCSU Women in Engineering Program, March 1-2, 2018

I’m writing to let you know about an opportunity for engineering undergraduate and Master’s students to attend a Women in Engineering Event at North Carolina State University.  The “We are W.E. (Women in Engineering) Program” is a networking and recruiting event within Civil Engineering Department at North Carolina State University to encourage the presence of women in civil engineering research and academics. As part of this program, we are happy to support travel for undergraduate and Master’s students who are interested in civil engineering research to visit NCSU on March 1-2, 2018.  The We are W.E. Program will include a research workshop, career-focused seminar and panel, poster symposium, and meetings with professors. Please distribute this email and attached application as much as possible to students and direct any questions to Emily Berglund at emily_berglund@ncsu.edu and Joel Ducoste at jducoste@ncsu.edu. Additional information is at http://www4.ncsu.edu/~emzechma/we.html.
Thanks for your support and help with getting the word out!
Sincerely,
The We are WE Committee

Student research development opportunity

The Pavlis Honors College is hosting a series of research-related workshops designed to educate students on best practices to enhance their research efforts.  The next workshop in the series will be held on Tuesday evening, November 14 from 6-7pm in Library 243.  The focus of this workshop is “How Not to Plagiarize!” and will be facilitated by the Library’s Jenn Sams.  The workshop is open to anyone on campus interested in learning more about this topic so that they can apply it to their research endeavors.  A list of upcoming workshops can be found here.

Undergrad Research – Civil Eng.

A couple of undergraduate research assistants are needed in my research group from this semester until the end of summer 2018.  Students with civil engineering materials (CEE 3101) background is needed. The GPA above 3.0 is desired. Most of research will be involved with fiber-reinforced concrete and high performance concrete design, mixing and tests. The hourly support will be provided with NSF REU support (US citizenship is needed for this support). If you are interested, please directly contact Dr. Qingli(Barbara) Dai (qingdai@mtu.edu) with the attached one-page resume.


Summer Undergrad Research

Please see below for information regarding two summer opportunities for undergraduate research. Minority participation is highly encouraged! The applications open in November and will be due Jan 29, 2018. If you have any questions please email the program coordinator (locheta@caryinstitute.org). In addition, if your students do apply please let me know!

– The Cary Institute’s REU program on Translational Ecology for undergraduates (http://www.caryinstitute.org/students/reu-program). It is a 12-week program involving 10 students in ecology-related projects every summer.

– The Urban Water Innovation Network undergraduate research program (https://erams.com/UWIN/urp/). This one is not an NSF-REU program. It is funded by the Urban Water Innovation Network UWIN, a consortium of institutions across the US focused on urban water sustainability issues.  It is a 9-week program in which 10 students are hosted at different institutions from the Network. Because UWIN is multi-disciplinary, we select students from different disciplines (engineer, social sciences, natural sciences) but with a common interest in urban water issues.
