Research Experiences for Undergraduates

The application period for Summer 2020 is closed.

The University of Minnesota offers a 10-week summer research program for undergraduate students.  A major theme of the site is focused on the computational methods for finding and visualizing patterns in big data that bring insight and understanding to other disciplines. However, students will also have the opportunity to work with faculty on a diverse assortment of exciting computing research topics, such as robotics, artificial intelligence, and virtual reality.

In this program, students both local and national will come together to learn about computing research methodologies, participate in active research, and receive professional development training. As a participant in the REU site, you will be closely mentored by a Computer Science and Engineering (CS&E) faculty member and will receive a $6000 stipend, room and board, and travel reimbursement.
