Please forward this information to students who are interested in an
undergraduate research program and individuals who may encourage them to
apply. Thank you.


Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE), in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is
sponsoring an undergraduate research experience in rapid prototyping.
We are seeking college students to participate in an innovative research
program that focuses on rapid prototyping applications in the aerospace,
architectural, biomedical, biomolecular, manufacturing and electronics
industries. We are seeking undergraduates from engineering, computer
science and science-base curriculums.


Rapid prototyping is an automated fabrication process allowing objects
to be created from a computer model without the need for molds, presses
or machining. Rapid prototyping systems slice 3-D computer models into
thin cross sections and use this data to control the placement of solid
material. The process is repeated for each cross section, and the
object is built up one layer a time. The MSOE Rapid Prototyping Center
has five state-of-the-art rapid prototyping machines, each capable of a
different process, stereolithography (SLA), laminated object
manufacturing (LOM), fused deposition modeling (FDM), selective laser
sintering (SLS) and Z-Corp 3D printing.


Eligibility: To be considered students must have completed their
sophomore year of an engineering, pre-engineering, computer science or
science-based curriculum; be enrolled in a university for the fall term;
and be a full-time student with a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or greater.
Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the United
States. Women, minorities and individuals with disabilities are
encouraged to apply. No experience in rapid prototyping is required.


To apply send the following information to Ann Bloor, MSOE, 1025 N.
Broadway, Milwaukee, WI 53202:


1. One-page cover letter

2. One-page resume

3. One-page statement indicating your interest in rapid
prototyping and undergraduate research, and why you should be selected
as a participant

4. Three letters of reference (at least two from previous or
current faculty)

5. University transcripts from each university attended.


Applications are due by Friday, February 25, 2005. Only complete
applications will be reviewed.


Program dates are June 5 through August 13, 2005. All students receive
a $3,450.00 stipend, on-campus room & board and a travel allowance.


Visit our website at www.msoe.edu/reu for more information on this
exciting program.


This REU program is funded by the National Science Foundation.
