Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)



Integrating Computation and Experiment to Create Revolutionary Materials (ICECRM) is an undergraduate research program for undergraduates, led by Mines Physics professor, Dr. Eric Toberer. The REU program is funded through the National Science Foundation, with a focus on developing new materials by harnessing the power of accelerated simulations and experiment.

REU is a highly competitive 10-week summer program for undergraduate students. Students from all over the country apply to participate in learning activities and cutting edge research to tackle leading problems in the area of materials informatics. The summer program is a three months of learning, building professional relationships and laying the foundation for careers in materials. The summer culminates in a poster session for students to showcase their work.

Participants will receive a stipend of $6,600 for the summer, are provided room and board at Mines, and receive a travel allowance.
