NEWT Undergraduate Program





The main goal of NEWT’s undergraduate program is to expose undergraduate students to concepts related to the synthesis and application of advanced materials for efficient and safe modular water treatment, and to provide research experience in this area.


Are you an undergraduate student at ASU, Rice, UTEP or Yale?  Are you interested in working in a NEWT lab?


NEWT offers undergraduate students from our four partner institutions the opportunity to conduct research in our labs throughout the school year. 

Explore the research being conducted at NEWT and learn about the people behind it by browsing NEWT faculty websites.  If you are interested in working with one of them, contact us.

Are you a community college student in the El Paso, Houston, or Phoenix areas and interested in working in a NEWT lab?


Join the NEWT Research Experience for Community College Students (REU), a 10-week summer internship specifically designed to give community college students hands-on research experience in NEWT labs.


This paid internship also provides training in poster elaboration, how to deliver a successful oral presentation, and write a research abstract.  At the end of the program, the interns present their work at a conference held at the end of the summer. More information and the application for this program can be found here.


You can learn about past interns’ experiences in the NEWT REU blog.
