WPI Data Science, sponsored by the National Science Foundation, is offering an all-expenses paid REU opportunity for your students to become involved in data science research this summer 2016.
The 10 week program is an interdisciplinary, undergraduate experience in Data Science Research for Safe, Sustainable, and Healthy Communities. The REU participants, working with WPI faculty, will learn state-of-the-art data science techniques and technologies and apply them to research focusing on societal challenges in healthcare, sustainability, security, and more. These are all interlinked concerns of critical national importance.
Selected REU students will receive a $5000 stipend, free on-campus apartment housing, a meal allowance, and an opportunity to interact with intellectual peers from a variety of disciplines. We are currently accepting applications from sophomores and juniors who have a strong interest in research; especially research focused on furthering smart communities including their health, well-being, mobility, sustainability, social media, and so on.
We rely on you notifying your best students about this opportunity and to encourage them to apply. Help them prepare for a promising future in data science. Students who are members of groups underrepresented in STEM fields, or who are enrolled in a non-doctoral institution are particularly encouraged to apply. Full details are found at: wpi.edu/+reu.
