Every summer, CMaT provides its Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program. The REU summer program funds 10-15 undergraduate students to work in CMaT labs at Georgia Tech (GT), University of Georgia (UGA), University of Puerto Rico at Mayagüez (UPRM), and University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW).

Due to uncertainty surrounding the ongoing seismic activity, CMaT will not host REU students at UPRM in summer 2020.
