Michigan State University will provide opportunities for a diverse group of talented undergraduate students from across the United States to engage in a wide range of research studies related to “sociomobility” as part of a recently funded grant.

Sociomobility, which is the area of research that lies at the intersection of engineering and the social sciences, involves the investigation of the societal implications of mobility advances such as self-driving vehicles, ride-hailing service and micromobility.

MSU has been awarded a $349,954 grant from the National Science Foundation, or NSF, to establish a Research Experience for Undergraduates, or REU, Site in sociomobility. The three-year program will provide research and learning opportunities for students, in addition to leading to applied research and workforce development benefits for industry.
