REU Program in Surface Engineering for Sensing, Energy and Nanoelectronics at the University of Texas at Dallas

Dear Prof. Rockstraw,

I am writing to ask your help in recruiting for our REU Program in Surface Engineering for Sensing, Energy and Nanoelectronics at the University of Texas at Dallas. The program will run from May 30th to August 4th.

Most research will be performed in the in the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Laboratory, which houses many state-of-the-art laboratories. Fellows will make use of on-site shared facilities, including a 5000 sq. ft. class 10,000 clean room fully equipped for semiconductor device fabrication, a comprehensive suite of high-resolution microscopy and nano-characterization tools, and advanced electrical characterization facilities, as well as the extensive instrumentation and resources maintained by individual research groups.  In addition to an immersive research experience, the Program also includes  

  • introductory short-course in surface engineering and materials science
  • research seminars and informal discussions with faculty and outside experts 
  • visits to local high-tech industries in the nearby “Telecom Corridor” 
  • seminars on the ethics and business of science and engineering 
  • career planning presentations 

The Fellows will receive a stipend of $5000, on-campus housing and meals, and a travel allowance if they live far away from Dallas. More information about the program can be found at, or you can email us at or Tonya Griffin ( Review of applications will begin on February 15th, 2017.

I would very much appreciate it if you would advertise this program to your group and any other interested students, and have enclosed a flier for the program. 

I look forward to meeting everyone!

Best Wishes,
