Research Experiences for Undergraduates: Computing for Disasters 
Applications Due March 15, 2014

Disasters pose a comprehensive need for critical real-time computing and information systems where data must be collected, transmitted, transformed, and displayed to stakeholders. 10  students will be offered a specific project at Texas A&M based on their interests and course work as part of the acceptance process. Several of the projects involve unmanned systems and human-robot interaction.

The students work with responders at Disaster City in Week 1 and learn about human-centered design in computing, then from weeks 2-9 work with their faculty and graduate mentors on individual research projects. They also meet weekly as a cohort for brown bag seminars on how to conduct research, career paths, and work/life balance, and in week 10 present at two poster sessions. Students also tour NASA Johnson Space Center and interact with industry and have lots of social experiences.

The Program runs from June 2 - August 8, 2014

Must be a US Citizen with a 3.0GPA or higher in computer science, computer engineering, or related area. 

Students receive $5,000 stipend, on-campus housing or allowance,  $1,000 meal allowance, and actual travel costs.
