The Department of Electrical and Biomedical Engineering has a long history of involving undergraduates in our research endeavors. Students have worked on projects that developed 3D printed antennas to visualization of electric power flow to MRI measurements on ACLs to hydrogels for tissue repair. Students have leveraged such experiences towards accelerating graduate research through UVM’s Accelerated Masters Program or to provide discussion points when interviewing for internships and jobs. A call for applications is made at the beginning of each semester and each summer.

Undergraduate Research Experience Program (REU)

The CEMS Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program funds up to 100 research opportunities per semester.
