Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU)
Research in Software Systems and Analysis

Program Summary

The primary objective of this program is to motivate undergraduate students to

pursue research careers and instill in them the spirit of innovation via intensive

summer research projects in software systems and analysis. Software affects

nearly every aspect of our lives and holds the key to many scientific and

engineering challenges. As software is increasingly pervasive nowadays,

software-related problems have become much more prevalent. This project

will study new trends in software systems including mobile software systems,

green computing, IoT services, big data and parallel systems. The site

emphasizes the participation of a diverse group of students, in particular,

women, minorities, first generation and non-traditional students.

The students will spend ten weeks in the summer on site working in groups

with supervising faculty member on a cutting edge research project. Students

will be assigned to an on-campus dormitory for inclusion in a supportive

campus community. Students will be closely mentored on research processes,

research ethics, advanced technology development and both written and oral

presentation skills. They will also participate in practical professional

development activities such as workshops for graduate school application and

field trips to industrial laboratories and the entrepreneurship forum. The

program will also include a fun social event at the crystal-clear San Marcos

River.
