We are excited to announce the Geothermal and Energy Geotechnics Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) site at UW-Madison.
The site is sponsored by NSF and hosted by Professors James Tinjum (Engineering Professional Development, Geological Engineering, and Civil & Environmental Engineering) and Dante Fratta(Geological Engineering and Civil & Environmental Engineering).
Energy Geotechnics is an emerging discipline in which engineers and scientists employ principles of engineering and the physical sciences of geology, physics, and chemistry for the advancement and design of renewable energy systems, such as wind energy foundations and collector systems, and geothermal heating technology.
Participants would expect to work in a challenging research group while being exposed to laboratory and field experimental work, modeling, analysis and interpretation of scientific data and engineering design of methods and systems.
