Description 
Exercise (Explore Emerging Computing in Science and Engineering) is an interdisciplinary project that explores emerging paradigms in parallel computing with data and compute-intensive applications in science and engineering. In the EXERCISE project, students will apply emerging parallel computing models including GPU computing with NVIDIA CUDA (a local parallel processing system) and MapReduce computing on Amazon EC2 (a distributed parallel processing system) to tackle data and compute-intensive problems in computer networks and security, image and signal processing, and geographic information system.
Qualifications 
United States citizens or permanent residents; a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) major; completing at least sophomore year of study; GPA 3.0 or above
