The International Research Experience for Students (IRES) program is hosted by the College of Engineering at Virginia Tech in partnership with the University of Nottingham, U.K. and supports international research experiences for Virginia Tech engineering students.
The IRES program will provide two graduate and three undergraduate VT engineering students with the unique opportunity to work on collaborative research. Students will investigate the critical research areas of next generation electrical power systems for environmentally-friendly transport systems and the human factors issues that accompany their use and adoption.
Following the overseas experience, students will present their research findings at a student research symposium or professional conference.
This program is funded by a National Science Foundation (NSF) Award for a three year period (Summer 2014-2016).
