Click here for more information and to apply

Application Deadline:  February 15, 2017

Welcome to the Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power (CCEFP) Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program. The program invites undergraduates to gain hands-on experience in conducting original research and apply it to cutting edge applications in fluid power and related disciplines.

The REU program and Center have historically been funded by the National Science Foundation. Students come from all around the country to work at CCEFP’s partner universities. Students have a diverse range of majors, experiences and interests. We hope that you will consider joining us this summer.

Students work in a university research lab on a project related to fluid power along with a faculty advisor and graduate student mentor with expertise in the field. Projects may involve studies of technical literature and reports, computer-aided design, mathematical modeling, fabrication designs, experimental testing, group discussions and team meetings. Every student has a project of their own with specific responsibilities and deliverables. At the end of the summer, every student creates a scientific poster, paper or project report. In addition, students blog to share updates, participate in CCEFP webinars and social activities with other REU students.
