The Georgia Tech Manufacturing Institute was awarded a three-year National Science Foundation grant to host a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) summer site. This summer, the third year of the grant, the Georgia Tech Manufacturing Institute (GTMI) hosted 11 students who participated in ongoing research at GTMI. In addition to their research, they took coursework on how to become a successful entrepreneur. This year's class included five veterans and four females.

By leveraging GTMI’s world-class facilities, diverse technical expertise, and inspiring interdisciplinary research environment, the REVAMP REU has given students and faculty the opportunity to improve knowledge in the critically-important advanced manufacturing technology topic areas. Training in research methodology, performance of scientific manufacturing research, and completion of technical seminars provided by GTMI faculty expanded each student’s manufacturing knowledgebase, preparing them for future careers in advanced manufacturing. Through entrepreneurship training, students also had a unique transformative opportunity to develop critical leadership skills for transitioning basic research discoveries into commercially viable innovations.

According to John Morehouse who directs the program for GTMI, a proposal for three more years of funding is in the works.
