Hands-on summer research for undergraduates. The NHERI REU Summer Program provides research opportunities at the eleven NHERI multi-hazard engineering and interdisciplinary research sites during a 10-week summer research program. The NHERI REU program is dedicated to helping undergraduate college students experience multi-hazard engineering as well as reconnaissance, cyberinfrastructure, data management, simulation, and social science research. Hands-on, research-based projects introduce participants to a network of researchers, and students who work toward mitigating natural hazards and understanding the impact of natural hazards on society.
U.S. citizens and permanent residents who are enrolled undergraduate students may apply for the summer program.
REU participants receive:
The program includes ten universities with different academic schedules (see links below). For this reason, two 10-week program blocks are used. The 2023 NHERI REU Summer Program Block I is from June 5 – August 11, 2023, and includes Florida International University, Lehigh University, the University of California, Berkeley, the University of Colorado Boulder, the University of Florida, and the University of Texas, Austin. Block II will take place June 20 – August 24, 2023, and includes Oregon State University, the University of California, Davis, the University of California, San Diego, and the University of Washington.
The 2023 NHERI REU Summer Program is a hybrid program hosted by the NHERI site and NHERI ECO. A typical forty-hour week in the program includes, graduate school and professional development workshops, research group meetings, networking, mentor evaluations, timesheets, reflections, research, and research writing.
Each of the Experimental Facilities within NHERI plus the RAPID Reconnaissance Center, the Simulation Center, and Cyberinfrastructure teams will participate in the 2023 NHERI REU program. Click the links below to learn more about each site.
The application is open to students who are U.S. Citizens or Permanent Residents who are currently enrolled in an undergraduate degree program. Because the projects vary in scope, we are looking for a variety of majors including civil engineering, computer science, and architecture, to name a few. If you are interested in solving engineering problems dealing with natural hazards or understanding natural hazards' impact on society, this undergraduate research program is for you!
Under-represented minority, women, and veteran undergraduate students are encouraged to apply to the NHERI REU program.
