The Aquatic Science, Engineering, and Technology (ASET) Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program (ASET-REU) is a 10-week program and immersive research experience exposing eight undergraduates per year to authentic aquatic research.
The ASET-REU program focuses on the Great Lakes and Hudson River basin research and includes an integrative learning community through research, seminars, professional development, and social activities. The program leverages existing research and educational programs in the Schools of Arts and Sciences and Engineering and the Institute for a Sustainable Environment.
Scholars will be diverse in perspective, discipline, and demographics with intentional recruitment from a variety of institution types, grade levels, and disciplines/sub-disciplines.
Scholars will develop a diverse background and interdisciplinary network, foster an understanding of research, create strong relationships with mentors and peers, and acquire experiences in all aspects of “doing research”, motivating them toward and positioning them for a STEM career.
