Departmental Research Experience for Undergrads (REU)

The CCEE Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program aims to provide valuable research experience for undergraduate students who are interested in research and are considering graduate school. Participation in this program is intended to be an honor and the selection process is competitive. Students who participate in this program will be mentored by at least one CCEE faculty member and will conduct state-of-the-art research related to civil, construction and environmental engineering.

Eligible students are expected to have at least sophomore standing with an overall and CCEE major GPA of 3.5, or higher. However, strong proposals from students who do not meet both of these criteria will also be considered. Students who are interested in this program should meet with potential faculty advisors, identify mutual research interest, and develop a proposal.

Proposals are to be submitted here and will be evaluated by the UG Programs Committee for overall quality, including both content and presentation. The value of the stipend for Spring 2019 is $1,500 and proposals for the Spring 2019 REU are due on December 21, 2018.

 

Departmental Study Abroad Program

The Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering Department provides a summer study abroad program.  The objective of doing so is to provide students with international experiences that encompass travel, culture, language, and people while providing NCSU CCEE course credit.  Participating in study abroad empowers students personally and increases confidence in what can be achieved (live in another country, navigate and travel, communicate and understand, see sights, develop personal plans, etc.).  It expands student world horizons and provides one of the best possible life experiences.  It is also important to note that future potential employers want to hire students who participate in Study Abroad programs because doing so demonstrates courage and willingness to accept challenges, to step forward, to deal with the unknown, and to engage in new activities.
