The REUs from other universities are starting to come out. These are incredible opportunities. Don't pass it up!
The Computer Science Department at the University of Texas at Dallas will conduct an eight-week summer research program funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) for ten undergraduates from June 1 to July 23, 2010. The focus of the research is on "verification and validation for software safety," however, the technology and research 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 the university, special field trips to Raytheon, Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company, and EDS will be arranged to help the students better understand how software safety is verified and validated 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.
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 for this NSF REU program will receive a grant to pursue a summer research opportunity with a faculty member at the Computer Science Department of the University of Texas at Dallas. Included will be a $3,600 stipend, a housing allowance, and a travel reimbursement for those from outside the Dallas metro area.
