Research Experiences for Undergraduates

The Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program is a program of the National Science Foundation to give undergraduate students an experience in performing research. Most of a student's career consists of classroom lectures. The REU program is intended to benefit students by offering experiences that go beyond the classroom. The UNLV Physics Department has had a successful REU program since 1987. Initially the program was limited to UNLV students. Beginning in 1992, the program was open to non-UNLV students as well. Students participate in research projects in the summer with follow-up activity during the academic year.
