AWaRE REU Apply Now


The Wireless Institute at the University of Notre Dame will conduct a 10-week summer undergraduate research program called Advanced Wireless Research Experiences (AWaRE). AWaRE provides opportunities for undergraduates EE and CSE majors to experience hands-on innovative research alongside faculty and graduate students. 

Students continuing college enrollment in Fall 2018 with interest in wireless networking and mobile computing are invited to apply. Women and minority students are encouraged to apply. Participants must be U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents. This Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF).
