CREST

The Centers of Research Excellence in Science and Technology (CREST) program supports the enhancement of research capabilities of minority-serving institutions through the establishment of centers that effectively integrate education and research. CREST promotes the development of new knowledge, enhancements of the research productivity of individual faculty, and an expanded presence of students historically underrepresented in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines.

Prospective Majors: Engineering (all disciplines), physics, chemistry, math, biological sciences, business.

Project/Research Examples: Fundamentals of self-assembly, nanoparticle synthesis and characterization, additive manufacturing, nanomaterials in biology, and nanoparticles in medicine.

 

DREAM

The Diversity in Research and Engineering of Advanced Materials (DREAM) Training program, sponsored by the Air Force Research Lab Munitions Directorate (AFRL RW) at Eglin Air Force Base, will provide undergraduate and GRADUATE U.S. citizens from the under-represented groups in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) disciplines, the opportunity to enhance their research experience in Science and Engineering. The selected participants will work on research projects requested by the AFRL RW.

Prospective Majors: Engineering (all disciplines), physics, chemistry, math, biological sciences, business.

Project/Research Examples: Projects include research on nanomaterials, multiscale composite fabrication, and developmental work on intrinsic structural health monitoring through triboluminescence.

RISE

The FAMU-FSU College of Engineering Research Internships in Science of the Environment program (RISE) program enables student participants to work under the mentorship of experienced faculty members along with post- docs, graduate students and other research assistants. By the end of the nine-week program, students will have gained valuable research skills through project contribution, seminars and workshops. The experience gained here will give students a competitive advantage in their respective disciplines as well as aid them in their preparation for graduate school.

Prospective Majors: Engineering (all disciplines), physics, chemistry, math, biological sciences, business.

Project/Research Examples: TBD

 

RETREAT

The High Performance Materials Institute (HPMI) is now accepting applications from undergraduates in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) disciplines for the NSF REU Summer RETREAT. The 10-week RETREAT program offers successful applicants the opportunity to work with leading experts and be trained on the utilization, manufacture, and characterization of multiscale and multifunctional advanced composites. Candidates selected to attend will also learn how to successfully commercialize technological innovations by participating in seminars on entrepreneurship and an EngiPreneur Competition (an entrepreneurship-based student project competition) to be coordinated by experts from the Jim Moran College for Global entrepreneurship of the Florida State University.

Prospective Majors: Engineering (all disciplines), physics, chemistry, math, biological sciences, business.

Project/Research Examples: TBD
