In the summer, Ph.D. student Detelina Stoyanova received an intriguing email message from the Division of Undergraduate Studies. “The message said there were undergraduate students available to help with a research project, and I’m collaborating on some research that is in the data collection stage. The timing was perfect.” Stoyanova wrote a description of her project and the work the students would do, then posted it on the site. After the application period closed, she selected two of the three students she interviewed to collect data for her research.
Grad students Feifei Xu, Qinguang Quan, and Ryan Learn interned this summer at research laboratories, both abroad and at home in the U.S. Each student spent eight to ten weeks working with a professor/mentor on one or more research projects. The internships provided an ideal opportunity for the students to match analytical skills and computer aptitude to a select research environment.
Beginning Fall 2014, the Department of Scientific Computing will offer ISC 4971, an Honors in the Major Program course. The Program was developed to encourage undergraduate students to explore their major discipline in greater depth by completing a research or creative project.
