The following article was originally posted on the ECU Honors College Research Connections Blog, a site for current Honors College students to seek internships, research positions, and other academic opportunities.
The Computer Science Department at East Carolina University will conduct a ten-week summer research program funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) for ten undergraduates!
Students will work on open research topics in software testing and analytics under the supervision of faculty mentors. They will participate in workshops on software testing and analytics, development of basic research skills, and application of scholarships and fellowships for undergraduate and graduate studies. We also will arrange field trips to visit our industry partners and ECU’s Brody School of Medicine.
When: May 23, 2016 to July 29, 2016
Who is eligible:
- Rising juniors or seniors from accredited undergraduate institutions who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
- Applicants should have a strong academic record and preferably a proficiency in Java programming.
- Underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply, as well as those from academic institutions with limited research opportunities.
Each selected participant will receive a $5,000 stipend, a housing allowance, meals, and a travel reimbursement of up to $500 for non-ECU students.
