Summer Research

Program Description

The Human-Computer Interaction research site at UMBC offers a focused, comprehensive ten-week residential summer research program to eleven select undergraduates recruited from two and four year colleges.

This program, which is supported by the National Science Foundation as one of its Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Sites, offers a $3,600 per student summer stipend with paid campus housing and program activities.

Students will be paired with faculty mentors to guide their individual research projects, which will be focused on Human-Computer Interaction. Students will work closely with their faculty research mentors with formal, weekly meetings to ensure the quality of the student experience.

Program outcomes include the creation of student portfolios and presentation of research projects at the UMBC Summer Research Fest in August 2004. Parents, mentors and advisors from home institutions will be invited to the Summer Research Fest, which will showcase each studentís efforts.
