Undergraduate Engineering Research in the Spotlight at Student Forum

Mizzou Engineers and students participating in Engineering REUs (Research Experiences for Undergraduates) were among nearly 130 student researchers across campus who had the opportunity to showcase their work last month. We spoke to some of our presenters to learn more about undergraduate research at Mizzou and what our students can do in 10 weeks. 


REU program gives undergraduates a taste of research, graduate school

Ten students spent the summer working with technologies through a REU program that now has many of them thinking about graduate school.

Past Participants Tout Benefits of REU Program

Students from across the country will spend the next 10 weeks developing consumer networking skills. It’s part of a Research Experiences for Undergraduates, or REU, program at Mizzou Engineering funded by the National Science Foundation. And for some, it’s life changing.

Trio of federally-funded programs showcase computational neuroscience

If you’re looking for a holistic approach to neuroscience research and education, the University of Missouri is the place to be each summer thanks to three federally funded, interdisciplinary programs. Electrical Engineering & Computer Science Professor Satish Nair leads an interdisciplinary team of faculty and grad students who put on two programs funded by the National Science Foundation and another by the National Institutes of Health.

Materials, creativity create potent mix in novel NSF REU

Take several eager undergraduates, a huge helping of cutting-edge materials science research and a dose of theater-based creativity and mix them all together — what do you get? One unique and highly educational National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates program.
