Research Experiences for Undergraduates Program Seeks Applicants

REU Road Sign LogoOnce again, applicants are being recruited for NSF’s Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program. The program, in its fourth year at MCEER, involves undergraduate students in Center research activities through summer internships. Fellow earthquake Centers MAE (Mid-America Earthquake Center) and PEER (Pacific Earthquake Engineering Center) also participate in the program.

Pending confirmation of funding, up to eight applicants will be selected at each Center and will receive a $5,000 stipend. Additional details and requirements can be found on our web site at or by contacting Andrea Dargush at The deadline for letters of interest is March 31, 2003.

In previous years, MCEER’s REU students have been involved in a variety of different projects, including seismic design and testing, public sector approaches to mitigation, risk and reliability in seismic design, seismic hazard characterization of the New York City area, application of remote sensing technologies for earthquake recovery, and performance of soils under earthquake-induced deformation.

This year’s participants will attend an Earthquake Engineering Symposium in Sun River, Oregon in August. The symposium will provide REU participants with an opportunity to present the results of their research, meet other students from around the country and faculty members from a wide variety of disciplines, and relax and unwind in a resort setting.

Any comments or suggestions concerning the bulletin are welcome!
To do so, write the editor at Winter 2002/Spring 2003.
