The Georgia Tech Physics REU is a ten-week summer research program hosted by the School of Physics using funds from the National Science Foundation. Physics majors are invited to apply for the opportunity to work under the supervision of a physics faculty member on a focused research project. The 2023 program will include a hands-on computational workshop, an overnight trip to a National Laboratory, a weekly Physics Frontiers Lunch and Learn seminar series, a half-dozen professional development seminars, and social activities with other REU students. At the end of the summer, participants will present their research to the School of Physics community and at a Georgia Tech REU Poster Symposium that includes REU participants from all the REU programs in the Georgia Tech College of Sciences.
The REU summer is a time to learn, build relationships with a graduate mentor and faculty advisor, network with other REU participants inside and outside the program, and explore research interests in physics. Georgia Tech School of Physics strives to provide a welcoming and inclusive environment where all students can thrive.
Available project areas span the field of physics including atomic physics, astrophysics, condensed matter, quantum materials, physics of living systems (biophysics), non-linear physics, and soft matter physics. Click here to learn more about our Research Areas.
