PATHS-UP provides summer research experiences for undergraduates (REU) to work at one of our four partner institutions (TAMU, UCLA, RICE, FIU). We are committed to recruiting, supporting, and engaging a diverse group of undergraduate students from across the nation and 1st year students from our four partner institutions in a PATHS-UP summer research experience. Thus, we are looking for students at all levels including first year students majoring in STEM. Additionally, students from groups historically underrepresented in STEM as well as student with diverse experiences and/or backgrounds are strongly encourage to apply for a PATHS-UP summer research experience.
Each student will complete a research project in one of the four PATHS-UP thrust areas with the goal of developing enabling technologies and advanced engineered systems toward better health for underserved populations. The student will be assigned a specific project in one of the four thrust areas by the PATHS-UP mentor and will use the engineering design process to identify and implement a solution. Students will gain leadership and communication skills as they learn to produce research results.
