Hello CSc majors,

Below are two summer research opportunities to consider if you are interested in graduate school or working in research & development in industry.






       MAY 28 - AUG 4, 2019

The application Early Action deadline is January 30, 2019 and the Regular Action deadline is April 5, 2019 or until positions are filled


Funded by NSF and DoD (PIs: Dr. Pissinou and Dr. Iyengar)


The Summer 2019 REU SITE of Florida International University Research Experience for Undergraduates in Advanced Secured Sensor Enabling Technologies spans ten weeks, May 28 - August 4 2019, offers research and professional development opportunities for 10 undergraduate students.

Available research projects share the theme of advanced secured sensor enabling technologies and span several exciting areas such as

    * Trajectory Privacy Preservation in Mobile Sensor Networks,

    * Privacy & Secure Social Sensor Networks,

    * Mobile Video Authenticity Verifications

    * Search Rank Validation for Social Media

    * A Software Library for Visualizing Large Scale Sensor Network Applications,

    * Trajectory Sensor Stream Cleaning,

    * Resource Management for Security & Surveillance over a Sensor Network,

    * Self-configuring, non-cooperative Mobile Sensors and many others

The application Early Action deadline is January 30, 2019 and the Regular Action deadline is April 5, 2019 or until positions are filled.









REU in Applied Computational Robotics at the University of South Carolina


Application deadline is March 1, 2019.


Program Benefits:

- A stipend of $500 per week.

- On campus housing in apartment-style dormitories.

- A meal allowance of $1200.

- Travel expenses up to $600.

- Professional development and training workshops.

- Coordinated social events.


An REU is a summer opportunity for undergraduate students to learn about the research process in their field and to conduct their own original research. Students work closely with faculty mentors, graduate students, and other REU participants on cutting edge problems. It's an opportunity for students to apply their knowledge gained inside the classroom to real-world, unanswered problems, and is an opportunity for students to explore research as a future career. In addition to conducting research, REU participants have the opportunity to receive professional development training that will assist them both in their current research and in their future careers, as well as the opportunity to network with other like-minded undergraduates.


The University of South Carolina REU in applied computational robotics is centered around the observation that "robots change everything." That is, every aspect of a computer system, from the design and engineering of its software, to its interactions with humans, to its core functions of perception and movement, is deeply impacted by the way robots must interact with the physical world. In this 10 week summer program, students will engage in active research rooted in areas such as software engineering, security, and automated reasoning that are often overlooked by the contemporary robotics community, but crucially important for the deployment of reliable, trustworthy robotic systems.
