MAE Summer Practical Research Experience (SPRE)
MAE SPRE provides the opportunity for students to explore engineering from the research perspective and gain insight and experience that does not result from classroom learning. Students are exposed to different types of research that are being pursued by the faculty. A general outline of the summer project is jointly developed by the student and faculty adviser. Part of the criteria for selection involves a brief written proposal for a summer project of academic merit as well as a faculty sponsor who endorses the proposal.
