Microscale Sensing Actuation and Imaging

Research Experience for Undergraduates


  Application   Projects   Facilities   Mentors   Contact   Cohorts   Contact The Department of Mechanical Engineering at Iowa State University hosts a summer research experience for undergraduate students. The program will create novel research experiences for undergraduate students in the areas of design and manufacturing of micro/nanoscale sensors, actuators, and smart materials, as well as advanced imaging and diagnostic systems.REU students will be active members of interdisciplinary groups and will interact with faculty, post-docs, graduate students, and industry. The students will participate in cohort experiences such as short courses, joint seminars/meetings, workshops, tours of research facilities, and field trips. At the end of the program, REU students will participate in a joint poster symposium with students from other undergraduate summer research programs from across campus. To complement the research experience and provide opportunities for students to get to know each other better, a number of social and recreational activities will be organized. These activities will range from the Central Iowa Festival of Arts in Ames to outdoor activities including hiking, biking, and sailing.
