Undergraduates - Junior
Undergraduates - Senior

Description:
The REU program is an intensive, ten-week program of instruction and laboratory research, beginning in early June and concluding in early August. REU students will contribute to specific research projects pursued by faculty and researchers at the Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics (LCSR).Each student will be a part of a collegial research team, including a faculty project supervisor and a graduate student mentor, and will work on a challenging research project.The projects will be designed to match each student's interest and to maximize the potential for making a contribution during the session. Participating students will receive instruction on technical communication, oral presentation skills, and research ethics to aid in the completion of the required final research report and presentation. The REUs may also have an opportunity to be part of a poster session at the end of the program. The students will have the opportunity to tour local government laboratories and a private company. One of the highlights of the program is the opportunity to participate in a surgery at the Minimally Invasive Surgical Training Center (MISTC) at Johns Hopkins Hospital. The students will also have the opportunity to take part in social events. Program details will be posted on the program website in December.

Stipend for 10 weeks will be provided

Housing will be provided.
