The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program 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.
In 2013 the Department of Atmospheric Sciences at Texas A&M began offering undergraduate students summer internships to carry out original research in a wide range of areas, including severe weather and forecasting, climate and paleoclimate, atmospheric chemistry and aerosol physics, radiative transfer and remote sensing, and atmospheric dynamics.
Observing the Ocean REU
The Geochemical and Environmental Research Group (GERG) and Department of Oceanography at Texas A&M University are proud to announce a new REU program that will focus on "Observing the Ocean: hypoxia, harmful algae, oil spills and ocean acidification." Ten students will be introduced to new ocean observing technologies and will use data from ocean observatories, buoys and time series to investigate the ocean. Students will work with faculty and staff mentors in laboratories and on seagoing projects to acquire the analytical skills for multidisciplinary oceanographic research.
A research program for undergraduate students interested in technology, geography, and health.
