Note: this opportunity encourages applications from community college students.

The Science of Software REU Site at NC State University immerses a diverse group of undergraduates in a vibrant research community working on data science and software engineering. Research projects include visualization and data manipulation in virtual reality, model-based reasoning, human aspects (e.g., eye tracking data), bug fixing, and software analytics which is a cross between software and data mining methods.

Students will work besides research faculty to gain hands on experience with data science skills: machine learning, data engineering, statistics, and studying developer behavior through observation, interviews, surveys, biometrics, and data collection. REU students present their work at an undergraduate research competition, develop videos to convey their research to K-12 students, and are encouraged to submit their technical papers as peer reviewed publications.
