Research Experiences for Undergraduates (NSF-REU)

The National Science Foundation funds Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) that present opportunities for students to engage in research at a university or institution outside the school where they are currently enrolled. UMBC and the College of Engineering and Information Technology (COEIT) provides students with new perspectives and ideas to enrich their learning and experience. Find out more about two exciting opportunities in COEIT below and visit the program websites for more information and application criteria. Read more to find out more about these programs at UMBC
