Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program (click here for details)

Our undergraduate research opportunities are particularly noteworthy. Undergraduate student research is arranged informally as early as the sophomore (or occasionally freshman) year at the initiation of the student or formally as a senior research project. In addition, the Lehigh physics department has one of the longest running and most successful summer research programs for undergraduates. Funding from several sources, including the University and the National Science Foundation, provides support which allows most of our upper- level physics majors along with a number of undergraduates from other institutions to spend ten summer weeks on campus, during which they carry out individual research projects with faculty members while living together on campus. Joint academic and social events take place during this time, which is capped by a day-long seminar at which each student presents his or her research results.
