Brief Description of Research ProjectLehigh University, through its Institute for Cyber Physical Infrastructure and Energy (I-CPIE) and its Advanced Technology for Large Structural Systems (ATLSS) Engineering Research Center, is proposing a 10-week CIAMTIS Lehigh Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program. The REU program will fund 4 students from a CIAMTIS member university to participate in a REU program. The program’s focus will include the assignment of each student to an active Lehigh University CIAMTIS research project under the direction of the project Principal Investigator and graduate student mentor to help the student navigate through the research project experience. Beyond the research experience, the program will expose the students to a well-rounded professional development experience. The program’s activities will include professional skills development workshops and seminars, onsite outreach activities, and offsite tours. The program will culminate with a final report, poster, and presentation on the research findings.
