Undergraduate Students

Description:
The Computer Science Department at the University of Texas at Dallas will conduct a ten-week summer research program funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) for ten undergraduates. The focus is on "software safety," however, the technology and skills learned by the students have general applicability to research and practice in their future studies.

We provide a close collaboration with our industry partners. In addition to work on assigned research projects at UTD, field trips to Raytheon, Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company, and EDS/HP will be arranged to help the students better understand how software safety is adopted in practice for real-life applications. This also gives students a chance to directly communicate with practitioners to receive a first-hand account of the work environments and lifestyles in the industry.

We also host special workshops on technical writing and oral presentation to improve students' proficiency in preparing and delivering technical reports. A highlight which provides an overview of our program including research projects, lectures, and field trips is available at YouTube. In addition, videos (along with PowerPoint slide shows) for students' project presentations as well as lectures on software safety and technical writing are also posted.

Eligible applicants are those who have an interest in pursuing a graduate education, are currently enrolled in an accredited undergraduate institution, and are U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Incoming seniors will be given preference, but sophomores and juniors with strong academic records will also be considered. Special welcome is extended to students from underrepresented groups (women, minorities, and persons with disabilities) and academic institutions with limited research opportunities. Selected participants will receive a scholarship to conduct research with a faculty member in the Computer Science Department at UTD. Included will be a $5,000 stipend ($500/week), a housing allowance, and a travel reimbursement for those from outside the Dallas metro area.
