STATESBORO, Ga. – June 18, 2013 – The Allen E. Paulson Chair of Renewable Energy at Georgia Southern University – Dr. Valentin Soloiu, has been awarded a $360,000 Research for Undergraduates (REU) grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). The University program, under his direction, will start next summer and be available to students across the country to explore solutions to energy problems.
“This puts us in an extraordinary position to reach out to undergraduate engineering students nationally and help boost their interest in research with hands-on learning,” said Soloiu. “The program that I have designed will allow students to perform research on our campus, and they will work on formulating new biofuels, hybrid combustion technologies, renewable energy, automotive engineering and many other areas.”
