Environmental Engineering Solutions for Pollution Prevention (EESPP)

The National Science Foundation REU Site at the University at Buffalo (UB) trains undergraduate researchers to address regional and global pollution concerns within 3 themes: detection, source control, and remediation. The 10-week program is aimed at providing students with confidence and independence. 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-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 2016. Students from under-represented minority groups and non-research focused institutions are strongly encouraged to apply.
