Students come from all around the country to work at the seven universities that are part of the center. Students have a diverse range of majors, experiences and interests. We hope that you will consider joining us this summer.

Students work in a university research lab on a project related to fluid power along with a faculty advisor with expertise in the field. Projects may involve background reading of technical literature and reports, computer-aided design, mathematical modeling, fabrication designs, experimental testing and group discussions and project team meetings. 
Every student has a project of their own with specific responsibilities and deliverables. At the end of the summer, every student creates a scientific poster and a project report. In addition, there is a program of professional development and social activities with other REU students.

**REU positions are available at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, Milwaukee School of Engineering in Milwaukee, North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro, Purdue University in West Lafayette and Vanderbilt University in Nashville.
