Worldwide, buildings are major energy consumers. In the U.S., for example, they use 41 percent of the nation’s primary energy; and in countries across the globe, the building energy consumption is similar, ranging from 30 percent to 40 percent. One way to improve the energy efficiency of buildings is computer modeling and simulation.

Ambitious undergraduate students desirous of exploring emergent computational science models and techniques for leading-edge research in a variety of scientific domains are encouraged to apply to the Computational Science for Undergraduate Research Experience (CSURE) REU project. Application deadline is extended to March 29, 2013.
