The University of California, San Diego is currently taking applications for the Summer 2020 E4E REU program. This is a 10 week residential program where students perform full-time research on the UC San Diego campus. The program starts June 22nd  and ends August 28th.  Participants are expected to attend full time for this entire period (although exceptions can be made on a case-by-case basis).
Engineers for Exploration (E4E) is a one of a kind program promoting multidisciplinary and collaborative research projects with the broad goals of protecting the environment, studying wildlife, uncovering mysteries related to cultural heritage, and providing hands-on learning experiences for undergraduate students. We team student engineers with scientists from a wide range of disciplines to create innovative technologies that are deployed around the world. Our projects have seen us collaborate with ecologists, biologists, archaeologists, and marine scientists to develop prototype systems that are then jointly deployed in the field, providing the engineers with the real constraints of practically deployable systems and the domain scientists with the new technological tools they critically need.
