REU Program

The NEESreu program (Research Experiences for Undergraduates) is a dynamic 10-week summer research program sponsored by the National Science Foundation for upper division undergraduate students interested in Civil, Electrical or Computer Engineering, and other fields related to seismic risk mitigation.

On this page you will find information about past and current programs. REU participants receive a stipend, are paired with a faculty advisor, and join a NEES research team. Students learn to conduct independent research and how to participate effectively as a research team member.

What Are REU Students Doing Now?

Faith Silva, a UC San Diego student and a 2013 NEES REU participant at UC San Diego, was awarded a $5,000 scholarship from the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) California. Faith will be using the scholarship to attend graduate school in Fall 2014. Faith will be joining us in Alaska at the 10th National Conference on Earthquake Engineering in July 2014 to present results from her NEES REU project.

Jose Hernandez, a graduate of CalPoly Pomona and a 2010 participant at Lehigh University was awarded a $5,000 scholarship from the Thornton Tomasetti Foundation in recognition of his academic excellence, outstanding work ethic and strong desire for a career in structural engineering. Jose is currently pursuing an MS in earthquake engineering at Lehigh University.
