Summer Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU)

Spend your summer conducting research with Duke faculty

Summer Research Experiences for Undergraduates — or REUs — offer engineering students from across the United States opportunities to gain valuable research skills at Duke.

Paid Opportunity

Students admitted to a summer REU program receive a competitive award that provides a monthly stipend.

Each student in one of our REUs works with a Duke Engineering faculty member, and her or his research group, to tackle an innovative research project.
