***2/15/21 Please note: The REU will take place virtually this year. ***
The REU program in Computational Sensing and Medical Robotics(CSMR) is an intensive, ten-week program of laboratory research and instruction, beginning at the end of May and concluding in early August. Projects are available in Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering and Computer Science. Students are awarded a $5,000 stipend and are given housing for the summer.
The projects hosted by the Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics (LCSR) and the Computer Integrated Surgical Systems and Technology Engineering Research Center (CISST ERC) are funded by the National Science Foundation. (The number of positions awarded will be determined once funding has been awarded in the Spring.) Candidates must be a U.S. Citizen or a U.S. Permanent Resident to be accepted into this program. Unfortunately, no exceptions can be made.
GOALS & OBJECTIVES
with a particular focus given to women and under-represented minorities, students from institutions nationwide will be recruited to participate in research projects pursued by faculty and researchers at the Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics (LCSR). Each student will be a part of a research team, including a faculty project supervisor and a graduate student mentor, to guide them through the summer. The projects will be designed to match each student’s interest to maximize the potential for making a contribution during the session. Many projects have been identified, and new projects emerge each year. Participating students also receive instruction on technical communication, oral presentation skills, and research ethics to aid in the completion of the required final research report and presentation. Additional activities will include tours and trips to other labs. The participants will also take part in a poster session at the end of the program. One student will be selected to present their research at the REU Symposium hosted by the Council on Undergraduate Research in the fall.
Tentative Program Dates – June 2, 2021 – August 6, 2021*
* If you are on a quarter system, you are still eligible to apply. If you are selected, you will work out an alternate start date and a way to make up your time with your PI.
Students will need to provide the following:
DEADLINE- All application materials need to be received by February 21, 2021 (midnight). Notification of acceptance will be sent by early March.
PLEASE NOTE – Students who graduate in Spring 2021 are not eligible for the 2021 program.
