The aim of this E-REU is to provide students with a truly integrated research and entrepreneurship training experience, giving them both depth in fundamental engineering research, as well as breadth in entrepreneurial skills. As part of this REU, you will take part in cutting edge research on commercializable ideas with UConn faculty, as well as participate in an entrepreneurship program developed by co-PI and UConn’s Entrepreneur-in-Residence, Dr. Hadi Bozorgmanesh.

Each year we will recruit 10-12 student participants to conduct research with individual faculty laboratories and their graduate students over a 10 week period. Admitted students will receive funding to cover housing and partial meal costs in addition to a generous stipend. For full consideration, applicants should ensure their application materials including an up-to-date resume and 1 recommendation letter are received between December 15th, 2016 and March 15th, 2017.
