The POETS Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) 2016 program summer program is now accepting applications. This 10 week program is a collaboration of Howard University, Stanford University, The University of Arkansas and The University of Illinois and is focused on power optimization of electro-thermal systems. Accepted students will have the opportunity to engage in research over the summer at one of the four collaborating institutions.
Global TIES - Teams in Engineering Service is an innovative humanitarian engineering program of the Jacobs School of Engineering at UC San Diego.
Global TIES teams give students an opportunity to apply their skills in a real-world setting while learning the role that engineering and technology can play in solving the local and global problems.
Not-for-profit organizations receive critically needed—but often cost-prohibitive—technical expertise, and students receive course credit for their work. UC San Diego faculty and researchers advise the teams.
Global TIES is one of three programs to earn UC San Diego a place of distinction on the U.S. President's 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013, and 2014 Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll. There was no Honor Roll in 2011. More Information (PDF).
