Research Experience for Undergraduates
The “Cultivating Next Generation Software Engineering Researcher” REU site at RIT immerses a diverse group of talented undergraduates in an exciting community working on software engineering and computer-supported collaborative work. Building on the research of an experienced team of faculty mentors, the interdisciplinary program focuses on three main themes covering the entire software development life cycle: Developers’ Productivity, Communication and Collaboration, and Design and Creativity.
10 students will participate in a ten-week summer research program (06/03/2020-08/09/2020). The project includes mentoring by the experienced faculty members, technical seminars and workshops, student presentations, field trips, and other professional development opportunities. They will gain skills and hands-on experience: software development, machine learning, natural language process, user study, statistics, network theory, and so on. REU students present their work at a university-wide undergraduate research symposium and are encouraged to submit their technical papers as peer-reviewed publications.
