Description 
Micro and nanofabrication of solid-state devices are rapidly becoming the key drivers of interdisciplinary research in emerging fields such as nanoelectronics, nanophotonics, nanomechanics, nanophysics, and biophysics. Such technology is a critical component of modern economic development, and leadership in research is a key to sustained US economic competitiveness. One of the greatest challenges in maintaining that leadership is the limited number of undergraduates from US engineering programs who pursue graduate studies in solid-state devices and the related topics of materials and device processing. The Summer Undergraduate Research Experience ("the SURE program") in Solid-State Devices for Electronics, Photonics, and Magnetics Technology was created to address this need. The SURE program will provide an average of ten students per summer the opportunity to pursue ten weeks of directed research in the areas of electronic, photonic, and magnetic devices, including material and device design, processing, characterization, and modeling.
Qualifications 
U.S. citizenship or permanent-resident status. Minimum grade point average 3.0 out of 4.0. One to four academic semesters remaining until graduation at the time of participation.
