Undergraduate Research Experience in Ocean, Marine and Space Science
The URE OMS program objective is to promote the professional development of minority undergraduate students through their participation in ocean, marine and space science research. The program consists of ten undergraduates. Each student is assigned to a specific research team, where he/she will work closely with the faculty. In addition, seminars, lunch meetings, and social functions are organized to facilitate undergraduate interaction. The project will be conducted for eight weeks during summer 2005, with on-line mentoring and follow-up during academic year 2005-06.
