Summer Research Opportunity at Cornell University

2018 REU undergrad, Sayeeda Jahin Aishee

The Center for Transportation, Environment & Community Health is looking for students interested in transportation/civil engineering as it relates to environment and public health for the 2019 REU Program taking place this summer June 4 – August 13, 2019.

The chosen undergraduates taking part in this ten-week program will receive hands-on experience through research, with applications to transportation/civil engineering! The research projects are designed and supervised by faculty and technical staff. Interns then work with their assigned faculty and graduate students on projects. A convocation is held in August to allow interns the opportunity to present their work to their peers in a concise scientific presentation. Interns also must complete a written report, akin to a research paper, summarizing the findings of their research project. These reports are published and distributed to the interns and sites, the National Science Foundation (NSF) and many others. 

Participants receive a $5,000 stipend, plus housing and reasonable travel expenses. Full participation in the ten-week program, convocation, and final reporting is mandatory.
