We are organizing a newly funded NSF REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) Site program at UMBC starting this summer. This REU Site program is for Online Interdisciplinary Big Data Analytics in Science and Engineering. It is a purely online program. The program will run for 8 weeks in the summer. Each student will be paid for $5,000 for participation and provided with opportunities to present their work at conferences.  

    More information of the program can be found at https://bigdatareu.umbc.edu/ and our flyer (https://bigdatareu.umbc.edu/files/2021/03/UMBC_BigData_Online_REU_Summer_2021.pdf). The tentative application deadline is 04/15/2021. The two project topics planned for summer 2021 are 1) Big Data and Machine Learning Techniques for Sea Ice Prediction and 2) Big Data and Machine Learning Techniques for Medical Image Classification. Undergraduates in all STEM fields are welcome to apply. Please distribute this opportunity to undergraduate students and additional colleagues/communities you see fit. The more people knowing the opportunity, the merrier. Thanks a lot!

    As required by NSF, only undergraduates from US institutions who are citizen, national or permanent resident of United States are eligible to apply.

    Just me know if you have any questions. Thanks.
