After a ten-week intensive research experience with JMU Engineering and Integrated Science and Technology faculty, engineering students Brandon Journell, (’12), Kritika Vayur (’13), and Christen Rhodes (’12), presented posters and overviews of their experiences during the 21st Annual Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Symposium hosted by the Materials Science and Chemistry Departments at JMU. 

Areas of research:

Funded by NSF, DoD, and ASSURE, the REU program provides an opportunity for faculty and students to work closely together on research.  An important element of undergraduate education, research allows students to apply what they have learned in the classroom to real scientific and engineering problems.
