Additional details and requirements can be found on our web site at http://mceer.buffalo.edu/education/reu/default.asp or by contacting Andrea Dargush at firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
