The department of Mechanical Engineering at Oakland University (OU) will once again be hosting a National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Site, “AERIM:Automotive and Energy Research and Industrial Mentorship Program at Oakland University.” The focus will be automotive and energy-related research topics in mechanical engineering with a special emphasis on technologies that aim to improve efficiencies of internal combustion engines, automotive manufacturing processes, automotive materials, alternative propulsion systems and lubrication and wear. We are seeking to recruit ten talented and motivated undergraduate students from across the United States to spend 10 weeks in the summer working on a research project at OU and are especially interested in providing opportunities for women and underrepresented minority students. Students will be provided with a $5,000 stipend, on-campus housing, meal allowance and travel funding. No prior automotive or research experience is required.
The program will run this summer from May 18 to July 24, 2015.
Application review will begin on March 15 and will continue until all positions are filled.
