NSF-funded Research Experiences for Undergraduate (REU) program is an excellent opportunity for undergraduate students to get involved in on-going robotics research at the University of Maryland. The REU sites hosted by the Maryland Robotics Center are listed below.

 

REU Site in Bio-Inspired Robotics 2017-2019

Bioinspired robotics is about designing robots that are inspired by natural systems such as insects, birds, mammals, and reptiles. Bioinspired robotics offers a truly interdisciplinary systems research challenge that encompasses biology, materials, mechanical design, control, sensors and actuators, power, electronics and computer science among other topics.

REU Site in Miniature Robotics 2012-2014

Miniature robotics, small robots with overall sizes between 1 mm and 100 mm, have the potential to significantly enable or enhance capabilities in manufacturing, medicine, reconnaissance, exploration, food safety, and search and rescue. Because of their size, miniature robotics offer a truly interdisciplinary systems research challenge that encompasses mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, materials science, and computer science among other topics.
