Announcing the Summer 2022 Materials Data Science REU Program

By Niki Jennings, MSE Communications Specialist

Applications are now open for the Materials Science and Engineering’s (MSE) 2022 Data Science Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program. Sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the 10-week paid summer research internship provides students with:


  • Hands-on experience in data science application for materials engineering problems
  • Cutting-edge characterization used for the discovery of novel materials
  • Participation in a unique, multidisciplinary research approach
  • Exploration of machine learning and other data science tools used in materials discovery
  • A $5,500 stipend + housing + reasonable travel expenses
  • Everyone is encouraged to apply, and especially students from academic institutions where research opportunities are limited and STEM URMs.


2022 Projects

The list of potential 2022 REU data science research project topics includes data science techniques for materials engineering problems.


The priority deadline for applications is February 15, 2022. Late applications will only be considered in the event that openings are not filled.
