We solicit interest from undergraduate students in Computer Science and allied fields for the UHD REU site. REU is a grant mechanism sponsored by NSF to promote scholastic activities at the undergraduate level. The applicants need to have a solid mathematical background, which includes calculus and statistics, and knowledge of basic algorithms and data structures. Selected applicants will a stipend of $5,000 and board to pursue research with faculty or industry mentors. The grant will include room and travel reimbursement if the applicant is coming from outside the Houston metro area. Project areas are listed under "Project Descriptions." Participants will have library, office, and laboratory space provided. Details >>
