Formalized in 1973, The Morrill Engineering Program (MEP) was developed to attract and retain aspiring engineers from underrepresented groups in engineering including African Americans, Native Americans, and Latinos/as. Through MEP, students find academic support services and activities, scholarship assistance, work experience, and community.
The mission of the Morrill Engineering Program is to empower African American, Hispanic, and Native American engineering students, support their success as scholars, and leverage a powerful community of students, staff, and alumni to achieve excellence in engineering.
Summer Research Experience for Undergraduates at UCLA, Cornell, CSUN, UCB
The Center for Translational Applications of Nanoscale Multiferroic Systems (TANMS) offers a 10-week, paid summer research experience for undergraduates at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), University of California, Berkeley (UCB), Cornell University, and the California State University at Northridge (CSUN). TANMS works to engineer a revolution in miniature electromagnetic electronics through development of a new class of nanoscale multiferroic materials. TANMS' research plan follows a top-down strategy where testbed systems level goals guide three engineering technology research thrusts motivating two fundamental research thrusts. The research program relies on system level metrics defined by 3 testbed demonstration modules, i.e. a) memory, b) antenna, and c) motor. These three testbeds rely on similar multiferroic concepts while also representing electromagnetic devices that maximize this program's impact on our society.
The TANMS REU stands out in the integration of entrepreneurial experience with scientific research. Students currently pursuing an undergraduate degree in engineering who are US citizens or permanent residents are eligible. The program dates for summer 2014 will be June 23 through August 29; applications are due April 15, 2014. Participants are paid a stipend and on-campus housing is provided.
