CASFER strives to develop the skills of up-and-coming engineers, as we hope to refine and support the next generation of NCE leaders. One way that undergraduate students can get involved with CASFER is through the REU Program.

The National Science Foundation defines The Research experiences for Undergraduates (REU) as a program that "supports active research participation by undergraduate students in any of the areas of research funded by the National Science Foundation. REU projects involve students in meaningful ways in ongoing research programs or in research projects specifically designed for the REU program...

"Within the ERC program, the REU program generally occurs in the summer for a set period of time (e.g., 6-10 weeks) and is aimed at students who do not attend the ERC lead or partner institutions. The REU program is used to give the benefit of ERC experience to a broader range of students beyond those attending the ERC schools, and to allow for the potential to recruit a more diverse cadre of students into the ERC for graduate school."

The CASFER REU program is designed to place undergraduate students on active CASFER projects and allow them to work with faculty, post docs, and graduate students to develop their STEM skills and gain valuable engineering experience.
