REU Programs for Freshmen

ARIZONA STATE UNIVERSITY

The QESST Engineering Research Center offers undergraduates the opportunity to participate in solar energy research. Through work on the pilot line, students will:

  • Have access to state-of-the-art facilities and gain experience directly relevant to industry, giving them the opportunity to demonstrate the commercial impact and relevance of their
    ideas by guiding them through the steps required to bring new ideas to commercialization;
  • Bridge the gap between the typical “research” devices and commercial solar cells, allowing fabrication and analysis of technologies on commercial-size devices and commercial equipment;
  • Work in a facility that allows new equipment or processes to be analyzed and assessed jointly with industry. Students will play a key role in this process.
  • Partner with a local student participating in the Fulton Schools’ Solar Energy Research program.
