Description 
Are you ready to explore materials science in the laboratory? The faculty at Clemson University believe that undergraduates can and do make important contributions to the field of materials science through their research. We also know that working in a research laboratory can be a transformative experience and help current undergraduates decide if attending graduate school is the right option for them. This program (Interfaces and Surfaces) accepts around ten students every summer to both fabricate and study new materials and material systems. During our ten-week program, participants will conduct research, practice a range of professional skills, reflect on how to achieve their career goals and experience working on diverse teams.
Qualifications 
- Students at all levels of their undergraduate work and from a variety of majors are sought for this program. - Priority will be given to under-represented students who have at least a 3.5 GPA and who have not had a research experience within an REU program. - All participants must be currently registered at a two or four year college, and may not have received their Bachelor’s degree prior to January 2018. - Women and members of demographic groups traditionally underrepresented in engineering are particularly encouraged to apply. - Applicants must be undergraduate students who are citizens or permanent residents of the United States or its possessions.
