Undergraduate Programs

Undergraduates present their work at a research symposium.

Center faculty will develop two new undergraduate courses (Sensorimotor Systems Design and Introduction to Sensorimotor Neural Engineering).  As with the new graduate courses, course materials will be disseminated to all partner institutions.  The center will also develop and offer a double major between the Colleges of Engineering and Arts & Sciences and a new minor in Neural Engineering will be available to students in any college at the UW.

Summer Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REUs) will be a primary focus of the center and promising underrepresented students are especially encouraged to participate. REUs provide an excellent opportunity to recruit these students to graduate schools at our partner institutions.  The Center will coordinate efforts with our partner community college programs to increase the number of students transferring from community colleges into four-year universities to receive engineering degrees.  CSNE faculty and students will engage with Student looking through a microscope.community college students through campus visits and invitations to participate in REUs. REU students will work with their faculty mentor to establish objectives for their research, create and present a poster, and write a report on their research or coauthor a publication. Weekly brown bag lunches will include presentations by UW faculty and group discussions on graduate schools, writing research papers, and creating and presenting posters.  REU students will participate in a final summer REU research symposium where they will present their work. 

The deadline to apply for summer 2014 was February 1, 2014 and we are no longer accepting applications.
