The NNIN REU program is designed to give undergraduate students an introductory research experience in nanotechnology. Each year a total of approximately 90 students are hosted across the network for a 10 week program, spread across the 14 NNIN sites. Each student works on an independent research project within their area of interest, using the advanced resources of our laboratories. Because of the breadth of expertise in NNIN, we are able to offer exciting nanotechnology research projects across the spectrum of nanotechnology fields: Electrical Engineering, Materials Science, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Physics, Mechanical Engineering, Biology, and Biomedical Engineering. Students take advantage of the streamlined training process that NNIN employs for all its users to become proficient in advanced laboratory practices quickly. Projects are scaled to be challenging yet achievable within the 10 week time frame.
