Program Information

The REU site TECH SCEnE is funded by the National Science Foundation.

The objectives of TECH SCEnE are:

1. Increase interest in engineering- and STEM-related careers (for both industry and research), and particularly, for underrepresented minority students.

2. Improve collaborative cooperation, communication, leadership, and interpersonal skills.

3. Develop and apply multidisciplinary engineering and STEM research skills.

4. Enhance faculty learning, mentorship, and pedagogy.

5. Demonstrate transformational values of community engagement in engineering and STEM research.


The objectives align with NSF commitment to capacity-building by broadening participation through preparing a diverse, globally engaged STEM workforce and expanding efforts to broaden participation from underrepresented groups and diverse institutions across geographical regions in all NSF activities. The project facilitates shared knowledge exchange, collaborative priority-setting, and supports tribal resource monitoring, management, and education.
