Undergraduates - Senior

Description:
This summer in Austin, 10 undergraduates majoring in science and engineering disciplines will be immersed in training at The University of Texas at Austin to be the next generation of ?game changers'. Participants will explore grand challenges such as climate modeling, weather forecasting, drug delivery, brain mapping, energy exploration and understanding the human genome, to name a few.

ICERT REU ACTIVITIES:

- Computational training in a multi-disciplinary cohort using some of the world's most advanced computational resources. Training led by TACC researchers with expertise in computation

- Integration into a research team including pairing with a mentor/researcher and graduate mentor working on a computational project

- Application seminars, training workshops, and STEM Outreach to K-12 and the public (explaining and demonstrating the contribution of HPC to society)

- Team-building exercises that will prepare participants for the workplace of the future

- Final presentations to cohort, University and TACC mentors
