Summer 2014 will mark the eleventh year that the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University is offering a summer REU Program (Research Experiences for Undergraduates). The program spans 10 weeks and involves undergraduate students from Texas A&M as well as students from other colleges and universities from across the United States. It is hoped that the students participating in the CSE REU program will make significant contributions to ongoing faculty research and, more importantly, will gain an appreciation for and an interest in graduate school and a future research career.
RESEARCH AREAS (Students and their interests are paired with faculty.)
Program Dates & Application Process.
The program will be held on campus at Texas A&M University in College Station from June 2 - August 8, 2014. Applications for the program should be submitted beginning November 1, 2013 using the web-based application. The application includes statements describing the applicant's research interests and technical skills, transcripts, and letters of recommendations (to be submitted on-line as well), so applicants are encouraged to start the application process well in advance of the deadline.
To participate in the program, students must:
Because the evaluation committee is most interested in your potential for graduate studies and research, letters from professors or others who have advised you in research or taught you in class are most useful. However, since not all students will have had prior research experience, letters from supervisors from work or other individuals can be provided.
Below is information related to the CSE@TAMU program itself as well as information about the Texas A&M University community. Deciding to join us for the summer is an important choice and we want you to be prepared!
If you have accepted an offer to participate in the CSE@TAMU Research for Undergraduates (REU), you will be asked soon after your acceptance about your travel arrangements. We ask that you allow us to make your travel arrangements as they pertain to airline travel due to reimbursement procedures. If you plan to drive your own car to College Station instead of flying, there are other travel procedures that must be followed.
Upon Arrival on Monday, June 2nd, there will be a CSE@TAMU Welcome.
Most participants arrive in College Station the weekend before the program begins.
