About our Program
Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Program for Summer 2013. The Electrical Engineering Department at Stanford University invites EE Major undergraduate 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.
Students must declare EE as their undergraduate major, if they are to participate in REU. With the exception of co-terms, in order to be eligible, students may not be seniors when they apply. In the event the number of applicants exceeds the number of available project spaces, preference will be given to first time participants. Stanford internally funds the REU Program and as such it is open to Stanford students only. If you are not a Stanford student, please refer to Stanford's Undergraduate Academic Life Office for additional research opportunities.
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 include topics such as graduate education, internships and career opportunities.
The last week of the summer program is devoted to writing a final report and creating a poster on the research project. Student participants present their projects at a poster fair, in which the EE Community is invited.
Funding & Housing
Each student participant receives a summer stipend. Students are required to reside in undergraduate summer housing and carry a meal plan. For information about summer housing can be found online at Stanford Student Housing
The application for Summer 2013 will be open during early February 2013. If you have any questions about the application process or program for next year, please contact us at
