Research Experience for Undergrads

The Electrical Engineering department at Stanford University invites undergraduates with an EE major to participate in its REU Summer Program from June to August. The program is designed to give undergraduates an opportunity to work with members of the EE Faculty and their research groups on advanced research topics.

Program Structure

The program is designed to give both an in-depth research experience on a particular topic, as well as a broad hands-on exposure to various areas within EE.

Bi-weekly seminars are offered to cover a wide range of topics. The seminar series lecturers are comprised of EE faculty and/or guest(s). Discussions will include topics such as graduate education, internships and career opportunities.

Presentations

The last week of the summer program will be devoted to writing a final report and creating a poster on the research project. The students will present their projects at a poster fair, in which the to the EE community will be invited.

Funding/Housing

REU interns will receives a summer stipend. Students are required to secure their own housing for the summer.  As a program affiliate, REU interns will have the option of enrolling in on-campus summer housing. Interns also have the option to live off-campus; however, we strongly recommend that students enroll in the on‐campus housing option. As part of the living requirement, students will need to acquire a campus-dining plan if they live on campus.

Please note that if students choose to arrange their own housing off-campus, they will also have to be prepared to pay associated expenses prior to receiving their REU stipend, since the stipend will come shortly after the start of REU.

To apply for Summer housing, submit an application for summer housing with the Housing Assignment Services Office. Please consult the housing office for more information regarding summer housing deadlines or visit their website.
