CIAN - Program Mentors And Alumni

As an NSF-funded Engineering Research Center, CIAN is committed to creating opportunities for cross-disciplinary, hands-on education that will result in a well trained, diverse workforce in the field of photonics and optical communications. The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program entitled Integrated Optics for Undergraduates, is one way CIAN accomplishes these goals.

By facilitating research experiences for undergraduates amongst groups with diverse research capabilities and interests, the REU program provides new, novel learning experiences that can play a key role in encouraging students to continue with graduate work in photonics.
