Join us at Johns Hopkins University this summer in a world-class, unique, interdisciplinary summer research program in computational sciences, systems and engineering (SRE). SRE is an intensive, ten-week program to help undergraduates immerse themselves in research and taste the excitement of inventing. SRE is led by faculty members in Computer Science, Biomedical Engineering, Electrical & Computer Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. Participants will be part of a research team, including one or more faculty mentors and/or a graduate student mentor, and will be expected to make contributions to a challenging research topics. Example areas of research include Artificial Intellifence, Medical Robotics, Genomics, Neuro-Engineering, Natural Language Processing, Interactive Visualizations, Healthcare Cost-Effectiveness and Mobile Computing. See project list on the applications page below for more details. Each participant is expected to present their summer findings in a poster and a final presentation session.
In addition to research, you will participate in a class that teaches scientific presentation skills. You will be given the opportunity to go on lab and company tours. And, you will meet and socialize with some of your brightest peers from institutions around the country. In terms of leisure, Baltimore provides easy access to D.C., as well as a range of picturesque outdoor locations including the Chesapeake Bay, coastal towns of Annapolis and Ocean City, and the Shenandoah Valley. There will be an opportunity to go on hikes and harbor activities.
Stipend for 10 weeks: $4,500
Housing will be provided
Program Dates: May 28, 2013-August 2, 2013
Few spots are available for International applicants.
Step 1: 2013 Project list: Projects for 2013 are posted at https://www.cs.jhu.edu/sre/projectlist.html. Each project has a number assigned to it. Applicants will need to pick their top three project choices and list it on their online application (see Step 2). Most projects are purposely open-ended. Once a student has been selected, students may work with their mentors to refine and adapt individual projects to their interest and background.
Step 2: Fill out the online application and indicate top three project choices from the list you reviewed in Step 1. Also, please attach a copy of transcript in PDF format before you submit your application.
