Colorado School of Mines Materials REU:

Integrating Computation & Experiment to Create Revolutionary Materials

Why Materials Informatics?

The opportunities and challenges presented by data in materials science and engineering have expanded rapidly in the last two decades. Massive data repositories have emerged both from supercomputer-based modeling and from advanced experiments involving data-intensive measurements. Harnessing the full opportunities presented by this flood of data is going to be a persistent challenge; the next generation of scientists need training in the skills required to create, manage, and analyze these data-sets.

Integrating Computation and Experiment to Create Revolutionary Materials (ICECRM) is an REU program focusing on accelerating the development of new materials faster by harnessing the power of data and experiment. Applications are now open!

Important Dates

  • Application Deadline: Extended to February 1, 2021
  • REU Dates: Mid-May through late July, 2021

Program Details

This REU is designed as an 11-week program where students will tackle an interdisciplinary problem in materials informatics. Participants will receive a stipend of $6,600 for the summer. Due to the pandemic, the REU will be run virtually in 2021 to allow students to participate safely throughout the summer. This REU was run as a virtual program during the summer of 2020, so we’re prepared to host the REU in this format again this summer!
