NSF REU SITE: Research Experiences in Information Centric Engineering
National Science Foundation
Comprehensive/Graduate Research (BS, MS and PhD programs)
Information Centric Engineering (ICE) and Digital Manufacturing - Research areas deal with creation of Virtual Reality based engineering and simulation environments for a range of process domains (micro assembly, surgical simulation and space systems).
The project goal is to introduce engineering/computer science students to research activities in Virtual Reality based simulation in Engineering, Manufacturing and Bio Medical fields. Information Technology (IT) continues to revolutionize engineering practices worldwide. This Project also encourages students with physical challenges to be exposed to ICE research areas and kindle their interest in IT oriented engineering careers.
Engineering/ Computer science Majors (restricted to US citizens or permanent residents); programming skills desired (C/C++ or Java). NOTE: Applications are encouraged from students with physical handicaps, women, and minority students. We also accept applications from other students. If you don’t have software or computer skills, you are still encouraged to apply.
Apart from a stipend, students will be provided additional financial stipends to support Housing, travel and subsistence expenses. Please contact Dr. Cecil for other details. Please make sure to indicate the nature of your physical handicap in the application so that we may provide appropriate assistance.
