|The Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Program in Computational Sensing and Medical Robotics (CSMR) is for students from institutions nationwide from a wide range of engineering disciplines including mechanical, computer science, biomedical and electrical engineering. These students will contribute to specific research projects pursued by faculty and researchers at the Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics (LCSR). Each student will be a part of a collegial research team, including a faculty project supervisor and a graduate student mentor, and will work on a challenging research project. The projects will be designed to match each student’s interest and to maximize the potential for making a contribution during the session. Participating students may 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.
Please note that this program is ONLY for undergraduate students from 2 year and 4 year programs(and not for students pursuing Master's degrees or PhD degree's).
The CSMR REU program is an intensive, ten-week program of laboratory research and instruction, beginning May 29, 2017 and ending August 4, 2017. Projects are listed by departments including Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering and Computer Science.
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 participants may have an opportunity to be part of a poster session at the end of the program. Candidates will need to be a U.S. Citizen or a U.S. Permanent Resident to be accepted into this program.
