The Center for Biological and Environmental Nanotechnology (CBEN) and the School Science and Technology Program (SST) at Rice University offers a summer program specifically designed to give hands-on research experience in one of the most exciting areas of scientific research: nanotechnology. This program is open to U.S. citizens or permanent residents who are community college students in engineering and science disciplines, especially chemistry, biology, physics, bioengineering, chemical engineering, environmental engineering and electrical engineering.
The NREU program lets undergraduates work on independent research projects in a Rice lab for 10 weeks and present their work at a conference held at the end of the summer. In addition to providing a research experience, we have social events in which students can interact with one another and discuss any issues of importance to them regarding their career plans.
