The REU program and Center have historically been funded by the National Science Foundation. Students come from all around the country to work at CCEFP’s partner universities. Students have a diverse range of majors, experiences and interests. We hope that you will consider joining us this summer.
Students work in a university research lab on a project related to fluid power along with a faculty advisor and graduate student mentor with expertise in the field. Projects may involve studies of technical literature and reports, computer-aided design, mathematical modeling, fabrication designs, experimental testing, group discussions and team meetings. Every student has a project of their own with specific responsibilities and deliverables. At the end of the summer, every student creates a scientific poster, paper or project report. In addition, students blog to share updates, participate in CCEFP webinars and social activities with other REU students.
