The Summer Research Expedition (SRE) is an intensive, ten-week program to help undergraduates immerse themselves in research and taste the excitement of inventing. SRE is led by faculty members in Computer Science. Participants will be part of a research team, including one or more faculty mentors and/or a graduate student mentor, and will be expected to make contributions to a challenging research topic. See this year's project list for more details.
Research areas include: Machine Learning, Computational Biology, Computational Healthcare, Algorithms for Big Data, Natural Language Processing, Computer Vision and Robotics.
In addition to research, students complete a course that teaches scientific presentation skills. Each participant is expected to present his/her summer findings in a final presentation and poster session.
The SRE program will also offer time for networking opportunities with peers from institutions around the country. Students are encouraged to take advantage of local attractions while on the East Coast. The Homewood Campus is conveniently located close to many tourist attractions and is a bus ride away from downtown Baltimore. There are a variety of free national museums with different specializations from architecture and engineering to space exploration to natural histories. And the nation’s capital is only a short train ride away. Don’t miss out on this opportunity!
