Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REUs) are critical for students in that they serve to bring the world of research to anyone interested in research at UMBC. Nirmalya Roy, an associate professor of information systems at UMBC, is principal investigator leading a new REU in Smart Computing and Communications funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The program is accepting applications through March 31 for this summer from students nationwide.

The program will bring together ten undergraduate students in a paid 10-week, full-time research experience from June 7 to August 13. While the summer 2021 program will be remote, each student will work closely with a research group and mentor. They will receive guidance from Roy and co-PI and CSEE faculty member Dmitri Perkins,as well as other information systems and computer science and electrical engineering (CSEE) faculty.
