Description:
Our Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program engages undergraduate students in the state of the art in the infrastructure for cyber-physical systems, and the applications and interactions that are enabled by that infrastructure. The program immerses students in a truly collaborative research community. We teach research skills through training sessions and experiential, hands-on learning, while students are active contributors to a community of practice that includes faculty, graduate students, and peers.

Students have the opportunity to explore and advance the state of the art in computer vision, visualization and visual analytics, human-computer interaction, and security for cyberphysical systems to address real-world problems with broad societal impact. Past projects have included the development of algorithms for analyzing medical images to improve clinical diagnosis of heart conditions and breast cancer, visualization of algorithms for vandal detection, examining perceptions of makerspaces, and studies of privacy and user expectations in social media.

We welcome participation from all students. We are particularly committed to broadening participation of underrepresented groups in computing, and strongly encourage applications from women and underrepresented minority students, students from institutions where research opportunities are limited, and applicants from minority and women’s institutions.
