Clarkson University

Program Overview


REU programs, or Research Experience for Undergraduates, give undergraduates the opportunity to conduct research for 10 weeks. Well, the REU program in Environmental Sciences and Engineering at Clarkson University is way more than that! In the Summer of 2006, 13 students from across the country came together in Potsdam, NY-friendships were made, bonds were forged and a good time was had by all.

Along with conducting individual research projects, students participated in a weekly seminar on environmental sustainability and attended a number of informatory workshops. The program schedule also included a number of educational, yet fun and interesting field trips. This webpage is intended to give you a glimpse into how we, the REU Crew of ’06, spent our summer here at Clarkson University.
