INTEGRATIVE COMPUTATIONAL EDUCATION AND RESEARCH TRAINEESHIP

Program Overview

The NSF REU Site at TACC recruits 10 undergraduates majoring in science and engineering disciplines and immerses them in training at The University of Texas at Austin. Research projects in areas of High Performance Computing (HPC), visualization, data intensive computing, and advanced computing interfaces will allow students to gain skills in advanced programming and problem solving, which are critical to making significant contributions to society as future innovators.

EXPERIENCE AT-A-GLANCE

  • Computational training in a multi-disciplinary cohort using some of the world's most advanced computational resources
  • Mentoring by TACC scientists and researchers
  • Professional development and graduate school preparation
  • Agile methodology and leadership training
  • STEM communication workshops
  • Team-building exercises that will prepare participants for the workplace of the future
  • Final presentations to cohort, University and TACC mentors
  • Poster presentation, technical report, and publication opportunities

STIPEND

Participants will receive a stipend, housing (and meal card) at The University of Texas at Austin, and travel arranged by TACC. Additionally, travel grants to present research at an annual conference will be available to selected participants.
