Funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) (Public Law 111-5), the NSF-Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Site SENSORS: From Design to Implementation (EEC-0851796) has been renewed for another three years.
The program, directed by MSE assistant professor Caroline Schauer (PI) and Civil Architectural and Environmental Engineering (CAEE) assistant professor Jin Wen (Co-PI), will receive funding in the amount of $300,000.
SENSORS is a 10-week hands-on summer research program for undergraduate students from around the country focusing on the area of sensor research from science to application. One of three REU programs in Drexel's College of Engineering and one of two in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, the program has been in existence since 2006.
