Research Experience For Undergraduates


Research Experience for Undergraduates
Center for Computation & Technology
Interdisciplinary Research Experience in Computational Sciences
Applications due: Fri Feb 15 2019
Program: Mon May 20 – Fri July 26 2019


The Center for Computation & Technology (CCT) hosts a
ten week Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program
where students work collaboratively on a wide variety of
computational science projects.

Each student receives a stipend of $5,000, free housing in
university dormitories, and up to $600 in travel expenses to
and from Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Ten students will be selected.


Undergraduate, community college student, or high school senior
attending college in the fall, interested in a major that is within
the computational sciences umbrella (leaves out few majors as it
includes all sciences, mathematics, engineering, finance,
statistics, etc.) with at least a 2.75 GPA, considering a career
in research and/or graduate school in your major, being a
US citizen or permanent resident, and graduating at least
one semester after completion of the REU.

Important Dates:

February 15, 2019: Application deadline.
March 15, 2019: Notification of decision.
May 20, 2019 through July 26, 2019: Program dates.

The research activities of the CCT are organized into five Focus
Areas: Core Computing Sciences, Coast to Cosmos, Material World,
Cultural Computing, and System Science and Engineering.

These are broad, and sometimes overlapping areas where faculty from
diverse departments (Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics,
Civil Engineering, Oceanography and Coastal Sciences,
Petroleum Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and
Computing Engineering, Music, Business, etc.) collaborate in
multidisciplinary projects.

Our REU students learn how to use some of the nation’s largest
supercomputers, may participate in the setup and management of
large-scale simulations, and may take on an important role in the
analysis and visualization of the simulation results.
