Academic Level:
Undergraduates - First Year
Undergraduates - Sophomore
Undergraduates - Junior
Undergraduates - Senior

Description:
The research experiences for undergraduate students in Software Systems and Analysis is funded by NSF CISE and hosted by Department of Computer Science at Texas State University. There are 10 positions for this 10-week program. The summer 2018 program will start on June 4 and finish on August 10.

The primary objective of this program is to motivate undergraduate students to pursue research careers and instill in them the spirit of innovation via intensive summer research projects in software systems and analysis. Software affects nearly every aspect of our lives and holds the key to many scientific and engineering challenges. As software is increasingly pervasive nowadays, software-related problems have become much more prevalent. This project will study new trends in software systems including mobile software systems, green computing, IoT services, big data and parallel systems. The site emphasizes the participation of a diverse group of students, in particular, women, minorities, first generation and non-traditional students.

The students will spend ten weeks in the summer on site working in groups with supervising faculty member on a cutting edge research project. Students will be assigned to an on-campus dormitory for inclusion in a supportive campus community. Students will be closely mentored on research processes, research ethics, advanced technology development and both written and oral presentation skills. They will also participate in practical professional development activities such as workshops for graduate school application and field trips to industrial laboratories and the entrepreneurship forum. The program will also include a fun social event at the crystal-clear San Marcos River.
