Undergraduate Students

Description:
The Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of South Florida in Tampa, FL announces research summer opportunities for qualified junior and senior undergraduate students in Ubiquitous Sensing. The program is funded by the National Science Foundation’s Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program. Students selected to participate in the program will work with faculty, share their experiences with fellow participants, attend seminars, acquire oral and written presentation skills, and learn how to conduct independent research.

The program provides exciting research opportunities in the area of Ubiquitous Sensing. Ubiquitous Sensing encompasses the integration of cell phones with sensors and Internet technologies to address large-scale societal problems as well as individual problems with the main goal of improving the life of people. Problems related to data analysis and verification, visualization, incentives, privacy, automatic activity recognition, and others are being tackled in the Location-Aware Information Systems Lab at USF.

Students will spend 10 weeks doing research in one project of interest while attending seminars and presentations from faculty and industry representatives about research and career development. Students will be awarded a stipend of approximately $5000 plus travel and on campus housing.
