Undergraduate Research Program – Summer 2023

REU Materials Science & Engineering – University of Missouri

The projects of this REU Site focus on understanding and predicting these relationships for micro- and nano-structured materials across a wide spectrum of applications, including sensors, batteries, reactors, and implantable devices. Students in this program learn cutting-edge materials research approaches that include atomistic simulation, coarse-grain modeling, and a suite of materials design / fabrication / characterization techniques. This research will not only advance the science in each unique area, but will provide students with unique, measurable skills in computational modeling, materials science design, processing, characterization, and creative thinking.

We also have several other programs for visiting students. To learn more about those, please visit our MU Undergraduate Research Programs page.
