Description: The National Science Foundation Engineering Research Center for Reconfigurable Manufacturing Systems (ERC/RMS) was awarded an NSF grant for a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program in 1997. The goal of the ERC in seeking funding for the project was to increase the number of underrepresented minority students in graduate school and to serve as a model for diversity within the University of Michigan community and the nation as a whole. The ERC has been very successful in involving young and promising cadres of underrepresented minority undergraduate students in this summer research experience, introducing them to the rigors of graduate school, and later, watching their graduate school applications arrive. The key elements to the success of the REU program in the ERC/RMS are: a team research project in reconfigurable manufacturing, a series of workshops, and a graduate school/GRE preparation program.
