Description 
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. Project also encourages students with physical challenges to be exposed to ICE research areas and kindle their interest in IT oriented engineering careers.
Qualifications 
Engineering/ Computer science Majors (restricted to US citizens or permanent residents); programming skills desired (C/C++ or Java). Students with physical challenges as well as Minority undergraduate students (African American, Hispanic, Native American and Women) are encouraged to apply. There is a strong emphasis to expose students with physical challenges to research experiences.
