Undergraduate Research

CSE offers undergraduates ample opportunities to engage in creative research, including the Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program of the National Science Foundation (NSF).  Undergraduates may obtain academic course credit while acquiring valuable research experience under world-class faculty.

CSE faculty are at the forefronts of their chosen fields of expertise, and students may engage in research on a variety of topics: pattern-recognition; high-performance computing; algorithms and complexity; artificial intelligence; medical image processing; multimedia systems; optical, wireless and sensor networks; computer security and information assurance; software systems and languages; computer architecture; and Very Large Scale Integrated (VLSI) systems.
