Summer Research Experiences for Engineering Undergraduates

March 11, 2004

Civil Engineering and Computer Science & Engineering will offer research programs for undergraduates again this summer. The programs are funded by the National Science Foundation.

Civil Engineering: Undergraduates are invited to participate in four research projects, which will be undertaken to evaluate performance of civil infrastructure systems in structural, geotechnical and construction engineering.

Structural Engineering Project: Application of Shape Memory Smart Materials in Seismic Design of Structural System Structural Engineering Project: Dynamic Analysis of CCTV Camera Poles for Security Monitoring Construction Engineering Project: Repair and Retrofit of Foundation Slabs Geotechnical Engineering Project: Novel Measurements in Geotechnical Engineering Laboratory.

Computer Science and Engineering: Eight research assistantships are currently available for qualified undergraduate junior and senior computer science and engineering students to participate in research in the field of distributed rational agents. Student participants will investigate problems related to Quality of Service (QoS) requirements, intelligent decision-making, and adaptive capabilities under real-time constraints in distributed, rational agents. This research will be performed in the larger context of MavHome and WISE, two large-scale research projects investigating the design and control of distributed, intelligent agents, which control software resources as well as hardware devices.

The CSE program consists of a 10-week session, from June 1 to August. Each recruited student will receive a stipend of $3,000 and an additional allowance of $500 to cover UTA tuition and registration for the course. Students from a university other than UTA will also receive a travel and accommodation supplement of $1,000. For complete details, visit
