The Environmental Engineering Solutions for Pollution Prevention (EESPP) Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) at the University at Buffalo (UB) is a 10-week summer program. EESPP-REU builds upon the past ERIE-REU program by promoting air and water pollution projects that are relevant to not only Western New York, but across the globe. Projects focus on laboratory and/or field experimentation in three themed areas:
Participants are paired with a faculty research mentor to conduct transformative air and/or water pollution research. Weekly group meetings of the REU cohort foster student-to-student communication via workshops and networking opportunities. A Research Symposium, as well as support for post-REU conference presentations and publications, provides students opportunities to hone their communication skills.
Students must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and be enrolled as undergraduate students in a college program through Fall 2018. Students from under-represented minority groups and non-research focused institutions are strongly encouraged to apply.
