Description 
The Neural Systems Engineering Research Experiences for Undergraduate (NSE-REU) program provides talented undergraduate students from around the country with the opportunity to complete a 10-week research project under the direction of University of Minnesota faculty. Research projects relate to advancing engineering approaches to study and interact with the central and peripheral nervous systems, including topics in experimental studies using cutting-edge recording and stimulation techniques, computational modeling, and neurotechnology device fabrication. Through this program, students are also given a range of special opportunities to improve their research and professional skills and prepare them for graduate school. This program is funded by the National Science Foundation to support 8 undergraduates. If accepted into the program, students will select a research program from one of 20+ labs and be paired with a graduate student mentor on a research project doing original research.
