Summer Research Expeditions (SRE) in Computational Sciences, Systems and Engineering

Program Information

Join us at Johns Hopkins University this summer in a world-class, unique, interdisciplinary summer research program (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. 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 topic. Example areas of research include Artificial Intelligence, Natural Language Processing, Interactive Visualizations, Healthcare Cost-Effectiveness and Mobile Computing. See project list on the SRE program page 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 25, 2015 - July 31, 2015
Few spots are available for International applicants.
