NSF REU SITE: Integrating Computation and Experiment to Create Revolutionary Materials

Integrating Computation and Experiment to Create Revolutionary Materials (ICECRM) is an REU program focusing on developing new materials by harnessing the power of accelerated simulations and experiment.

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 enormous data-sets. This REU seeks to provide students with a sense of where materials science is going in the 21st century.


This REU is designed as a 10-week program where students will tackle an interdisciplinary problem in materials informatics. Students will be paired with a professor and associated graduate student and conduct cutting-edge experimental or computational research. Participants will receive a stipend of $6,000 for the summer, be provided room and board at Mines, and receive a travel allowance.
