Description 
The CIMM Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) project is a nine- or ten-week summer program where students work collaboratively on topics related to advanced manufacturing and materials research. CIMM research addresses the scientific and technological barriers relevant to two broad classes of manufacturing methods: (1) Multi-scale forming and replication for high-throughput manufacturing and (2) 3-D Laser-based Printing for adaptive manufacturing. Students will be integrated into ongoing research projects in state of the art facilities in an environment of peer and inter-institutional mentoring and collaboration.
Qualifications 
an undergraduate at a two-or four-year institution, must have a minimum GPA of 2.75, be a U.S. citizen or a permanent resident, and consider a research-related career or graduate school in a science major.
